Organiser's Description

SUMMER READY RUN

Get yourself ready for summer and consider joining in the fun at the Summer Ready Run

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, 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.

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

Approximately a week before the event, you will receive a detailed race briefing pack explaining the times and set up, if you are hoping to run with someone or possibly in a group, once you have entered, I suggest entering the event at the same time or please send us an email and we will do our best to accommodate.
