Course Details

The event takes place at the very popular Heaton Park in Manchester, UK. The 5K looped route combines road and woodland trail with some rolling hills. The route allows you to experience Heaton Park in all its expanse and beauty as you run by Boating Lake and Heaton Hall and explore the trails and streams of the woodland.

how it works

All runners will start at 09.00. The starting/finishing point will be the singular aid station (every 5K) which will have water and fuel. The cut off point for finishing is 17.00.

There will be one starting line, which will also be a crossing line that provides loop split times. When you're ready to finish the number of loops you want to run, you cross a separate finishing line.

Participants will be able to see their finishing time and distance from the moment they step over the finish line via our website. Alternatively, printed finishing tickets will be available at the event on request

There will be one winner of the overall 50K race, but there will also be 'fastest finishing times' for each number of loops which will be released on our website after the event finishes.

facilities

Surrounding the start/finish line will be the event village. There will be music, stalls, a coffee stand and toilets. This is where spectators can gather and participant's crew can set up individual stations if preferred.

The start/finish line will also act as the singular aid station area. There will be water, fruit and a limited number of nutritious energy bars and hydration products from our event sponsor VOOM.

At the finish line there will be refreshments including fruit and vegan flapjacks. There will also be specialised bottled water and healthy energy drinks provided by our event partner Actiph.
