How far is the race?

You decide! The 3.7-mile off-road loop means your race can be just over 5k or even over 50k and anywhere in between. 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 (29.6 miles) and a half marathon will be 4 laps (14.8 miles).

Oak Challenge route

The course isn't flat but there aren't steep inclines. Each lap has around 160ft of elevation, making the marathon distance 1280ft of elevation.

The course is on the track pathways on "the other side" at Hicks Lodge. Given the nature of the track, there won't be muddy sections. In really bad weather, there may be puddles but generally there is good drainage throughout.

Event Details

Kit List

We suggest running road or trail shoes would be suitable. Running in "racers" probably isn't wise though, as there may be the occasional big stone on the pathway that wouldn't be much fun on ultra thin soles.
