Organiser's Description

Schools Out Run - the first weekend of the school holidays.

LOCATION: Brandon Country Park, Bury Road, Brandon, Suffolk, IP27 0SU
Brandon Country Park is in the very heart of Thetford Forest.

It's a six hour event, (if you choose 9am start or 4hours if you choose 11am) 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, we have a 5.3k lap throughout the forest consisting of gravel footpaths and some grass areas - a multi-terrain course.

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.

When you enter the race, you will receive a confirmation from Find A Race and then a confirmation from Zig Zag Running which includes a link to the race briefing pack

Parking is chargeable at the park, and we will have marshals directing you to park on the day.

Please note the event has gone cupless so please bring a cup or bottle for your refreshments

super lowkey, lovely + supportive staff, coffee and cake afterwards and a lovely soft/forest ground running surface. Great for a first half marathon!
