Organiser's Description

A good event for those trying to conquer the A-Z of events, we have decided to do a Zig Zag Challenge event!

Its a big birthday month for Zig so we thought this would be a perfect event and medal to add to your collections.

Come and join us at our exclusive venue at Horseheath Racecourse, Cambridge, CB21 4QP

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 designed a 5.3k route which encompasses the grounds of Horseheath racecourse, 90% of the route is within the grounds and a small portion is on a public footpath/Bridleway.

You can run as much or little as you want to, you can rest between laps if you like and take in the music at the aid station, all whilst socially distancing of course.

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, the location is pretty self-contained, making this an intimate event with us having exclusive use of the main area. We have plenty of open space at the venue to ensure we can all stay socially distanced and space ourselves adequately,

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.

Course Details

An undulating picturesque course within the private grounds of Horseheath Race Course. The terrain has long slopes rather than hills, it is a challenging course, there is a small public footpath/Bridleway yet whilst its undulated, its primarily flat. Mainly pathway with a small undulated section, our suggestion is to wear road trainers, but depending on the weather before the event you may want to bring trails if you have them but not essential.

Important note: Please do not bring any glass to the venue, this is strictly prohibited

Race HQ / Base Camp

The Race HQ/Base Camp is located at the start and Lap point where we will have our water/aid station, the Race director will call you all to the start line where you can remain socially distanced for the race briefing, then you will progress to the start line in your coral of up to 6 people to start the race.

You will be able to leave your bags and extra kit you want to bring in your car as it will be close to the start/Lap point of the race. We also have a large barn for items to be left at your own risk.

race Pack

Upon entry you will receive an email confirmation from Event entry and Zig Zag Running,

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.

The Medal

We have designed a Bespoke medal for the event, which you will receive at the end of the race

If you choose the Lucky dip entry option you will receive a medal but it will not be specific to the event
