3 Hour Challenge:12:30pm
Runners will have the option of running a Marathon or taking on the 6 Hour Challenge. You will take on laps of a 10.7k course, which although is multi-terrain it mostly takes place on flat tarmac.
The course starts on the upper promenade at Holland on Sea and takes you along the seafront towards Frinton on Sea. Runners will head through the beautiful Holland Country Park along the gravel tracks, before heading back along the Sea wall to Holland on Sea. The Lower Promenade will give beautiful views of the sea and the sandy beach before you head back up to the Upper Promenade to complete the lap.
There will be an aid station at the start/finish point, so runners can refuel as often as they wish and there is no need to carry any kit. This gives runners a brilliant opportunity to take on a distance they haven't completed before. 2 laps will complete a half marathon, 4 laps a marathon and any more than that and the clock is your only limit!
But don't be put off by the long time limit, runners can rest as much as they wish between laps and refuel as often as they need. The fuel stations will be equipped with flapjacks, sweet things, fruit, and nuts, and also water and squash. But you can also leave your own items there if you have more individual requirements.
- Bespoke Finisher's Medal
- Fully stocked aid stations

It's our aim to provide premier running events throughout Essex and the South East for all abilities. Between us, we have accumulated more years running than we like to count and participate in as many races as we think we can get away with (either to stay injury-free or just to keep the family harmony)! We think that this gives a really good idea about what makes for great running events and our aim is to provide awesome events with runners always at the heart of what we do. We also recognise the enormous benefits of running for general well-being and mental health and want to encourage participation at every ability and for any age. For this reason, we have set up a running group to operate within the Run Together initiative.
The more spectators the merrier the atmosphere. With this event being by the seaside spectators can bring a picnic and camp out while their friends and family tackle this epic event.
Do I have to run for the entire 6 hours at the Cartoon Capers "Meep Meep"?
No, the beauty of this event is that you set your own challenge. You can run, walk or crawl as far as you like. Everyone who comes down and runs just one lap is considered a winner.
Do I need to bring my own bottle or cup for the Cartoon Capers "Meep Meep"?
Yes, in an effort to limit the impact of the event on the environment this event will not be providing cups at the aid stations. Please bring your own bottle to refill.
Are there toilets at the Cartoon Capers "Meep Meep"?
Yes, there will be toilets located opposite the start in the car park and throughout the course should you need to use them.
This event currently has no reviews, why not be the first? You could help someone find their perfect event.
