Route information
The Lucky Dip Challenge
Have you missed out on one of our Event Medals this year ? This could be your chance to add a medal to your collection. With over 20 to choose from, we are sure you will be happy with the choices available
Come and join us at our exclusive venue at Suffolk Running Centre, Church Road, Bury St Edmunds, IP29 5AX
Your race, your pace, your distance!
We will be utilising the Denham Flats Route* which is a 6.55 mile out and back sociable loop. On this course you leave the centre and go out through the Barrow Village towards Denham. At around 3km you will see Ely Cathedral in the distance. You will also get the chance to run past the deer farm.
This is a super easy course to navigate, it is however important to note the tricky crossing near the corner by the shops due to parked cars.
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!
But don't be alarmed by this long time limit, this event is for runners of all abilities. This could be a great opportunity to run your first 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon or even Ultra Marathon. You can run as few or as many laps as you wish, resting between laps or pushing yourself through the whole 6 hours.
For those more experienced athletes looking to really push themselves, this is a brilliant opportunity to run a long distance with no other complications, no navigation, no kit required and with feed stations every lap.
Whether you are looking to run your 1st 10k, or your 50th Marathon, the brilliant Zig Zag Running team will cheer you all the way around.
There will be an aid station of drinks and nibbles every 10k.
Parking is also included in your entry price. 
Upon entry you will receive an email confirmation from your entry portal and Zig Zag Running.  This will also contain the link to the race briefing information pack.
Everyone will get a medal on completion. You will be able to select it in advance or choose on the day (subject to availabilty)
Please note the event has gone cupless - so please bring your own bottles or cups for refilling.
* all routes could be subjected to a last minute change
