This event is a great platform to try running either your first 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon, or even a staggering Ultra Marathon. When selecting your ticket at the checkout, please remember that these distances are simply guidelines, and not definitive distances.
In this 6-hour event, participants will run as far, or as little, as they want around a 5.3k lapped route through the stunning forest of Brandon Country Park.
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.
With small inclines rather than hills, this course is primarily flat and mainly follows an undulating pathway. This is a multi-terrain course, consisting of gravel pathways and some grass areas.
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.
