Whether you're a complete running novice or this is your 100th ultra, the Zig Zag Challenge is a great opportunity to get moving and see how far you can run.
In this 6-hour event (if 9am start is selected), participants will run as far, or as little, as they want around a 5.3k lapped route through the stunning surroundings of Brandon Country Park.
They will make their way through beautiful expansive fields and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding woodlands.
This easy-to-navigate route through the grounds means runners will be able focus solely on more on their pace and completing as many laps as they can.
Runners will have the choice to run the entire 6 hours, rest between laps at the aid station, or to finish their race before the 3pm end. This race is in complete control of the individual, so remember to take it at your own pace.
You will have 6 hours to complete as many laps as you can, and if you're lucky maybe a little bit more because if you leave the base camp before 5:59:59, you can complete one more lap!
* When selecting your ticket at the checkout, please remember that these distances are simply guidelines, and not definitive distances.

Did the race in 2022
I would highly recommend Zig Zag. They were brilliant, great organisation, friendly Marshall's, brilliant aid station with loads of goodies and a big slab of cake with tea or coffee at the end! What more could you ask for - fantastic!
