Route information
Whether you're a complete running novice or this is your 100th ultra, RIOT is a great opportunity to get moving and see how far you can run.
In this 6-hour event (if 9am start is selected), 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. 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.
* When selecting your ticket at the checkout, please remember that these distances are simply guidelines, and not definitive distances.
