Route description
Route description

This event is designed to treat all participants equally, and give every entrant the opportunity to challenge themselves in a way that suits them.

This timed 8-hour event will see participants completing as many or as few laps of the 5k loop as they choose. There will be a pit stop every 5k with coaches, food & drink, and a massage area to ensure you're ready for your next loop.

When you've completed as many laps as you can, ring the bell and your distance will be recorded. It doesn't matter what the distance is, just that you take part and keep moving forward!

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!
