About The Event

Who doesn't like cake?! Our Great British Bake Run is back for another year!

The medal is a fantastic cupcake which doubles up as a magnet to go on your fridge!

We will also hold a baking competition with prizes for best tasting cake, best looking cake, best effort cake - all of which will be on the aid table to be eaten during the run!

Distance & Time

This is a 7 hour Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a lap. A full lap is 3.28 miles (5.3km) and you can run as many or as few of these laps as you wish in the 7 hour time limit which starts from the official event start time. It is 4 laps for a half marathon, 8 for a marathon and 10 or over for an ultra, we also have a 50km distance available.

Course

The course is within Herrington Country park and the final route will be announced a few weeks prior to the event.

Medals & Pins

As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic medal. We also have distance pins available for anyone who runs a half-marathon distance or more. Pins available to collect are our Half-Marathon, Mega-Half, Marathon, 50km and Ultra pins. You will receive one pin on the ribbon of your medal to reflect your achievement.

Goody Bag

Absolutely! You earned the calories after all, so all our finishers get a goody bag. As well as our standard goody bag, with a selection of various goodies to choose from, we also have a fabulous vegan goody bag for our vegan runners.

Aid Table

We have a fantastic aid table and drinks table at the start / finish of each lap. There is a great selection of savoury, sweet, fruit, cheese and vegan items at the aid table.
