About The Event:
For this event, we are hoping to have a mix of medals for you to grab from on the day, including our Chasing Numbers medal. Join us for our summer holiday midweek chasing numbers run, which as it's the school holidays is also open to under 18s!
The event is a 7hr time challenge event for all runners, but specifically could appeal to people chasing numbers or trying to fit in extra events to achieve personal goals. We have been chasing numbers ourselves and know the cost of doing a large numbers of events in a short period of time. The midweek runs are designed to help bring the cost of running events down to all runners. You will still receive a great medal and a small goody bag and we will have a full aid table for runners, including a vegan range.
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 aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles, although we may opt to use the 4.37 mile route if the weather is good. The toilets are situated in the Wraysbury Skiff and Punting Club which is available for our runners use from 8am and for the entire event. There is also a cafe situated in the Pleasure Grounds should you wish to use it.
The course is along the Thames River path and classified as a trail run. The course is flat and fast.
Minimum distance is 5km (we will have a 5km marker) 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 events.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS EVENT STARTS AT THE EARLIER TIME OF 9:00AM AND THAT ALL RUNNERS MUST BE FINISHED BY 4PM DUE TO THE SKIFF CLUB NEEDING TO PREPARE FOR A REGATTA ON 8TH AUGUST.
