This is a 6 hour timed multi-lap event. Each lap being approximately 3.1 miles. The trail is a compact gravel for part of the way, and sand for the rest. 5 laps for a half marathon, 9 for a marathon, and 10 for an Ultra. This venue is variable depending on the weather so we do reserve to alter the course slightly and therefore alter lap lengths subject to weather leading up to the event.
At the end of each lap our aid station will be stocked with all the goodies runners like: water, squash, jelly babies, Haribo, crisps and cakes. All the things required to help set you off for another lap or two, or if you prefer you can ring the bell to officially finish your run and collect your medal.
A 6 hour challenge event is a lapped event where entrants complete as many laps as they wish within the 6 hour limit. Complete one lap and your are officially a finisher and receive a medal. You do not have to declare the distance you intend to run when you enter or even on the day, it is down to how you feel on the day. When you want to stop, ring the bell at the end of the lap and your time and distance will be recorded. Only fully completed laps will count towards your distance, partially lap distance will not be included.
