About The Event:
Join us for 'The Lost Runs' event and earn yourself a fantastic medal based on the prehaps the most iconic Vampire movie ever (well, of the 1980's anyway!). 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 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 you will earn a fantastic medal! Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We even 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 between the Rowing Club, Baths Bridge and Maiden Castle and consists of a mixture of path and trail. The course is mainly flat, although there is potentially one large hill depending on the course we take. The course is subject to change due to path repairs and weather conditions.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles. The toilets are situated inside Durham Amateur Rowing Club, which is available for our runners use from 8.00am and for the entire event. There is also a bar situated inside the Rowing Club should you wish to use it and changing facilities available after the run. There is free on-road road parking nearby, but no parking at the venue itself.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out.
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.
COVID-19 POLICY: We will not be able to offer refunds should we need to postpone the event due to the ongoing global pandemic as the vast majority of our costs are incurred in advance of the event. We will, however, offer you the opportunity to defer your entry to a future event (you will receive this medal) or you will be able to run the event as a virtual run. Additionally, we will also look to re-arrange the event within the following 12 months.
If the event is allowed to go ahead, but local authorities enforce a restriction on numbers of runners, we will hold the event and limit the numbers based on the first entered basis. This means if you enter later and the run capacity is reduced, we will again offer you a deferral to a future event or the option to transfer your run to a virtual run. Additionally, we will also look to re-arrange the event within the following 12 months when restrictions are relaxed.
