Organiser's Description

It's Christmas and everyone's favourite Christmas Elf (not that annoying one on the shelf) has made an appearance on this medal. Not only is it a medal, it doubles up as a tree decoration with a smaller ribbon you can hang on your tree!. And the fun doesn't stop there, as well as our awesome aid table, everyone will get a fantastic oversized Bobble hat too.

Distance & Time: This is a 6hr 30min Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. We are also running a 5k, 10k, half-marathon and marathon events at the same time. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a full lap. A full lap is 4.37 miles (7km) and you can run as many or as few of these laps as you wish in the 7hr time limit. Please note, we may use the 3.28 mile course at this venue and we will advise closer to the time.

Course: The course is at Herrington Country Park, with the final route to be confirmed.

Medals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive one of our fantastic medal.

Bobble Hat: You will need to sign up by 31 July 2022 to guarantee a Bobble Hat. After this date, any remaining bobble hats will be purely on a first come / first served basis. Once they have all gone we will inform entrants no more hats remain.

Distance Pins: We have distance pins for all runners who do a half-marathon or more. 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.

Goody Bag: Absolutely! You have earned these replacement calories after all, so all our finishers get a great goody bag. You will have a selection of goodies to choose from. As well as our standard goody bag, we have a vegan goody bag too. Please remember to let us know if you are vegan or if you prefer a vegan goody bag when you enter and we can have this ready for you.

Aid Table: We have managed to maintain our aid table throughout the pandemic with our COVID secure policies, approved by various SAG and Public Health teams across the UK. We have now returned to our full aid table selection, however we will serve you rather than a return to help yourself. You can rely on a great selection of savoury, sweet, fruit, cheese and vegan selections at the aid table - great if you are running long distances.

Special Event: If our event is a special event for you, for instance your 50th, 99th, 100th, 150th, 200th, 250th etc. marathon or half marathon then please let us know. We will provide you with a great number with your name and the event date on it. Also, if it is your birthday, again let us know and we will get you a special number for your birthday!

Toilet & Changing Facilities: Toilets are available at the start / finish area inside the venue HQ. There are no changing facilities.

Parking: There is parking available onsite.

Other Info: There will be an area for kit bags to be left. This area is not watched and any bags left will be at the runner's own risk. Baggage areas are subject to COVID rule changes.
