Organiser's Description

WTF - Wheres The Finish?

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.

On entering, you will receive an email with the link to the race briefing pack giving you all the instructions you need for race day

Ran the 10km at Brandon Country park despite the cold the race was well attended and very well run. No shortage of Marshalls or signs so no danger of getting lost and was great running through the woods trees and forest track. Only challenge was keeping a close eye for protruding tree roots as they were dangerously proud on certain areas of the track. No feed stations on the route (only at the start/finish) but that was well communicated ahead of the run so plenty of time to organise individual requirements. Very enjoyable run and very well organised

Very well organised event. The only feedback would be about food as I'm coeliac as well as a vegetarian, it would have really helped if snacks and sweets are labelled as being vegetarian or not. Was also looking farward to the cake in the end, but there was no gluten free option. Hopefully that can be sorted in future.

Well organised event. The only feedback is about labelling the snacks and sweets as being vegetarian /gluten free. I'm coeliac and a vegetarian. Was looking farward to the cake in the end, but there was no gluten free option. Hopefully that can be sorted next time.
