Organiser's Description

About The Event:

** ALL ENTRIES PRIOR 31ST MAY 2023 WILL RECIEVE A HAT. ANY ENTRIES POST 31ST MAY ARE NOT GUARANTEED. WE NEED NUMBERS EARLY TO GET SUPPLIES IN ON TIME **

Join us in the Christmas fun with a Christmas hat themed event

Distances include 5km, 10km, half-marathon, marathon, 50km and Ultra distances, but you can choose how far you want to run on the day, meaning this is a great event if you are new to running or want a no-pressure event to achieve a personal goal.

Distance & Time: This is a 7hr Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a full lap. A full lap is 3.28 mile course at this venue. The minimum distance will be a shorter 5km lap.

Course: The course is within Herrington Country park and the final route will be announced a few weeks prior to the event.

Medals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic medal. We have mini-me pins available for the first 100 entrants.

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.

Parking: There is parking available at the venue.

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.
