Daventry Challenge – July

Event summary

How far is the race? You decide! The 3.6-mile out and back route means your race can be just over 5k or even over 60k. You decide how many laps you're going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance, you'll need to complete 8 laps (28.8 miles) and a half marathon will be 4 laps (14.4 miles).

Your organiser

The majority of our events are challenge events - multi-lap races with a time limit rather than a set distance. This means people can run all different distances on the same day, making for a great atmosphere. Lapped events can get some negative feedback but our laps are around beautiful locations. We avoid out and back laps and coming back to the wonderful aid station (full of your requests) can be a good motivator. Whether it's your A race, you need to do some long training runs, you have a 100-mile ultra in a few weeks or you want to hammer out a quick 10k, our races allow everyone to get involved together. We’re also expanding our mid-week evening 10K series too. Keep an eye out for updates on these as we are continually adding more. Expect the same care and attention and in the same great locations!

Route description
Route description

The majority of the course is over crushed stone and, dependent on the weather, could be muddy. There are tree roots, a few small sections where the pathways are more natural and a section of single track running. The route goes around the reservoir into the woodland and around the meadow. This should give you something different to look at on each lap! The course is runnable throughout.

How to get there

Daventry Country Park's postcode for Sat Navs is NN11 2JB. It's 20 minutes from M1 Junction 16. The closest train station is Long Buckby.

You do have to pay to park (£2 at the time of writing). This money goes directly to the country park, it's a great space that needs money and this is their main revenue stream. That said, be a hero and car share, save money and the world!

Frequently asked questions
FAQ
Is this event cupless?
Yes. It's obviously good for the environment to reduce plastic use and general waste. You won't break a world record having to stop to fill a bottle of water or carry a hydration pack, but over a marathon distance it would probably add less than a minute to your time. We will have water, isotonic drinks, tea and coffee and real Coca Cola for you, but to be clear, we won't supply disposable cups for drinks. You can buy a foldable cup from us on the day.
