Route information
Well, we just couldn't let a Leap Year slip by without a cheeky little run and so it's time to 'Hop to it' and join us on the Thames towpath for nice little midweek jaunt. And, as the Leap Year falls nicely on a Thursday, we're doing this one at our Thursday / Phoenix Friday pricing and including it in our book 5 get one free 'Club Thursday & Friday' - win, win, win!
The Club Thursday / Phoenix Friday events are a little smaller than our weekend events and the entry fee a little less than our standard themed entry, but with no compromise on our legendary medals. This one is a new variation on our Freddo medal. Ribbit.
This event is one of our timed events where you choose - from 5km to 10k, half to marathon to ultra, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.3km, 3.28 mile, out and back, course along the beautiful river Thames. We welcome all abilities of runner - complete one lap and you're both a finisher and a winner in our eyes, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full time limit and everyone gets a fabulous bespoke finishers' medal from our awesome selection.
Not sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don't even need to decide in advance - simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if it feels right.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
Minimum distance is 3.28 miles or as far as you can go in 7 hours. Off road trail, the terrain is riverside towpath. The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
