Age Requirements

Team Entry
Those not quite sure they want to take this challenge on alone can run with their team.
Entrants can take part in a team of between 2-5 people, and you can either run all together or in a relay style.
Your total laps run individually will be totalled and then averaged, to ensure comparison across different team sizes.
The most important rule is that if any one team member rings the bell to signal the end of their race, the whole teams race finishes. Not all members of the team have to run the whole team, but all members of the team must be participating in some way for the laps to count.
To check-in for the team event all you have to do is check-in as usual at the registration desk and add your team name to the whiteboard. This allows for some last minute team changes!

Did the Run the Sun in 2022
A very muddy, but fun trail run. Perfect if training for a longer distance off road race. Organisers were so friendly and helpful.

Excellent event, ideal to test yourself at new distances due to the no pressure lap format of the race

Rosie was really helpful with my last minute booking. And on event day, she was so welcoming and cahtyy and made me feel like i was part of their running family, even tho this was my 1st event with them. Such a lovely low key event which attracted runers of all abilities. I would certainly encourage newbis to try them out.

This was a friendly well-organised off-road event. Because we've had so much recent rain the route was muddy, but it was very well signposted.

Really enjoy this - route although muddy (it’s January so to be expected) was perfect and gives you a real sense of being immersed in nature which you don’t get at “Country Park” lapped events.Vibe was lovely and friendly everyone very laid back. Would have been nice to have an event photographer but understand may not have been possible for such a small field.
