About The Event:
"Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas means a little bit more...running!". Join us for The Run That Stole Christmas event where you have 7 hours to run as far or as little as you want will distances from 5km to ultra covered.
You can complete as many laps of a 3.28 mile (5.3km) looped course along the beautiful River Thames 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 can stay on the Magic Run-about 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!
PIN OPTIONS - We will be offering a 'pin only' sign up option for those runners who would like a cheaper run and aren't interested in the medal. This will be £5 cheaper than the full medal option and your will receive a mini medal pin plus your distance pin. There will be STRICTLY 30 PIN ONLY entries. Due to minimum order quantities the FIRST 70 RUNNERS to sign up to the medal option will receive the medal and the mini medal pin which can be attached to the medal ribbon or displayed separately.
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 Thames River and a mixture of path and trail. The course is flat and fast and is a truly beautiful course that follows the river thames through picturesque scenery and nature reserve.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles and we will have a fantastic festive spread. You may stand and think "Am I just eating because I'm bored?" and the answer will be no, its because there are so many treats to choose from!
The toilets are situated in the Wokingham Waterside Centre which is available for our runners use from 8.30am and for the entire event. There is also a small café situated within centre should you wish to use it and changing facilities available after the run. There is free road parking.
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.
