About The Event:
We invite all Wizards and Witches (And Muggles!) to join us for 'The Philosophers Run'. This medal is a 100mm double sided spinner and is the first in a series of 7 we will hold in the North East to celebrate a heroic young wizard's years at the most iconic wizarding school! This is a 7 hour timed event where you can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many (or as few!) laps of a 3.28 mile (5.3km) looped course along the River Wear as you wish within the 7 hour limit. We welcome runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap will earn a stunning themed medal. There is no maximum distance and you can continue running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We will also have a 50k option for those wishing to run this distance.
There will be a distance pin for all runners who complete either a half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, 50km or Ultra in the 7hr time limit which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The course is along the River Wear path and classified as a trail run.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles. The toilets are situated in the Durham Ameteur Rowing Club which is available for our runners use from 8am and for the entire event. There is also a bar and showers situated in Rowing Club should you wish to use them. Parking facilities are nearby.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out. This is a beautiful medal, with the second in the series being at Druridge Bay in July.
Minimum distance is 3.28 miles or as far as you can go in 7 hours. 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 event.
