About The Event:
Celebrate everyone's favourite baking programme with our 'Great British Bake Run' and earn yourself an amazing themed medal. Now in its fourth year, this event is one of the ones we look forward to, not least because of the yummy cake!
This is a 7 hour timed event where you can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of a 4.37 mile, 7.0km out and back, course along the beautiful River Thames as you wish within the 7 hour limit. We welcome all runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap will earn a fabulous cake themed medal (and let's face it, everyone loves cake...why else do we run?!)! Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit!
For those runners who choose to run 3 laps or more, you will also earn Saturn Running half marathon, marathon or ultra pin which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The course is along the Thames River and a mixture of path and trail. The course is flat and fast with the start and finish area close to the centre of Staines-Upon-Thames.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 4.37 miles. The toilets are situated within the Thames Side Brewery which is available for our runners use from 8.30am and for the entire event. As you would expect, the brewery has a range of beers, but also serves other drinks and food too (if you have room after all that cake!!)
We have 30 pin only places available and the first 70 entrants of the full entry will receive a mini-me pin too.
Prizes will be awarded for the following categories
- Best looking cake
- Best tasting cake
- Best tasting vegan cake
- Worst cake (a category I could even win!)
We have two events running at the same time. The main event is a UKA Permitted event and is for all runners aged 18 or over. In addition, we have a non-UKA event for runners under the age of 18. Runners under the age of 18 will automatically be included in the non-UKA start list and this event will start 1 minute after the main events
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out.
