Organiser's Description

***18/5/23 - EVENT MEDAL NOW SOLD OUT - Lucky dip still available ***

Brandon Country Park is in the very heart of Thetford Forest.

It's a 12 hour event (if you choose 8am start) or a 6 hour event (if you choose 8am, 11am or 2pm start), or in fact a 3 hour event (if you choose 8am, 11am, 2pm or 5pm) run as far as you can during the time you have chosen.

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 an email from Findarace and then a confirmation from Zig Zag Running containing a race briefing.

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

Due to the multiple start times, you may choose to enter more than once and earn multiple medals.
