Organiser's Description

***27/3/23 - EVENT MEDAL - sold out - lucky dip remains open ***

The Easter Challenge 2023

Come and join us at our exclusive venue at Suffolk Running Centre, Church Road, Bury St Edmunds, IP29 5AX

It's a six hour event, run as far as you can during the six hours and a little bit more if you're lucky, as long as you are leaving the Base Camp by 5:59:59 you get to run another lap.

You can run as much or little as you want to, you can rest between laps if you like and head out for some more.

You may be completing your first official 5k,10k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or even ultra-Marathon, or it may be your 100th or 1000th.

This race is also ideal for those who want to try and achieve a Marathon distance and for those who also want the option to push a little further, possibly an ultra but without the complications of trail ultras, with next to no navigation, no kit required, an aid station every lap and straightforward logistics.

We will be utilizing the Denham Flats route (road route) which is a 6.55 mile out and back sociable loop.

On this course you leave the centre and go out through the Barrow Village towards Denham. At around 3km you will see Ely Cathedral in the distance.

You will also get the chance to run past the deer farm.

This is a super easy course to navigate

It is however important to note the tricky crossing near the corner by the shops due to parked cars.

Parking is also included in your entry price.
