Remembrance Day

Route description
Route description

This special event has a unique atmosphere and takes place on Remembrance Sunday. The Last Post will be played before the event starts then at 11:00 all runners are encouraged to take a breather and join a moment of silence to remember those military personnel who have given their lives over the years in service to our great country.

The race itself takes place on a traffic-free, undulating trail course. Runners will complete laps of a 10.55k loop, and with an aid station at the start/finish point and halfway round, runners can refuel as often as they wish and there is no need to carry any kit. This gives runners a brilliant opportunity to take on a distance they haven't completed before. 2 laps will complete a half marathon, 4 laps for the Marathon and any more than that and the clock is your only limit!

But don't be put off by the long time limit, runners can rest as much as they wish between laps and refuel as often as they need. The fuel stations will be equipped with flapjacks, sweet things, fruit, and nuts, and also water and squash. But you can also leave your own items there if you have more individual requirements.
