How far is the race?

You decide! The 3.3-mile loop at Salcey Forest means your race can be 5k or over 60k! You decide how many laps you're going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance, you'll need to complete 8 laps (26.4 miles) and a half marathon will be 4 laps (13.2 miles!).

Salcey Winter Challenge route

This is a flat course with minimal elevation changes.

The route is along well-maintained pathways, mainly on crushed stone. Obviously being in the middle of a forest, the narrower ones are covered in tree detritus and can become a bit muddy, especially when wet.

Event Details

Kit List
On a dry day, road shoes will be perfectly acceptable; on a wet day, trail shoes may be a better bet as some parts can become a bit slippy.

Is this the first running of this event?

Not really! We've had multiple 6-hour events at Salcey Forest over the last couple of years, but this is the first time we've had a series here.

Is this event cupless?

Yes. It's obviously good for the environment to reduce plastic use and general waste. You won't break a world record having to stop to fill a bottle of water or carry a hydration pack, but over a marathon distance it would probably add less than a minute to your time. We will have water, isotonic drinks, tea and coffee and real Coca Cola for you, but to be clear, we won't supply disposable cups for drinks. You can buy a foldable cup from us on the day.
