Route information
This 6 hour timed event is 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.

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.

Did the 5k in 2022
Everyone was very friendly. It was well organised. The selection of cakes was impressive! The only thing I would change is that it was a bit disappointing not to be able to find out my time. When you finish the run, you want to know how long you took! I think you're going to send it out sometime tomorrow. But it would be much better if you could tell people at the time. That's the only thing I would want to improve. Otherwise, really good.
