Route information
The R.I.O.T Run name comes from a wonderful slogan: 'Running is our Therapy'. This 6 hour timed event follows the slogan brilliantly, a wonderful opportunity for runners of all abilities to come and enjoy pressure free running.
Competitors will complete laps of a 5.3k lap throughout Hinchingbrooke Country Park. The course itself will be flat over mixed terrain, with a combination of gravel footpaths and grass sections. 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.

Zig Zag Running
Since 2000, Zoe of Zig Zag Running started running, starting from scratch with the feat of trying to get to complete a 5k, taking the couch to 5k training plan. It just didn't stop there, over the years pushing herself, this self motivation eventually evolved into marathon running. Zoe has completed Marathons, Ultra Marathons, 5 Marathons in 5 Days, 52 marathons in 52 weeks, 10 marathons in 10 days, 100 marathons in 100 weeks, a 50k & a 50 mile Ultra marathon, with her target next of completing a 100 mile race. ​ Stephens background is in Hypnosis, therapy, sports coaching and Entertainment. ​ During this time we have both gained valuable experience in what it takes to organise a good marathon, we have also both met and made friends with some wonderful people who are such fun to be around, with useful advice, assistance and encouragement throughout the country and even in other corners of the world Our mission is to give our runners the best experience and encourage others to achieve their goals and dreams and to also impart the ideals of good sportsmanship, community and health.

Excellent challenging mixed terrain course. The option to change distances mid-race was a great idea (although I was quite happy with my choice of 10k). First class organisation and marshalling with free coffee and snacks at the end. All round unbeatable.
