Route information
If you weren't able to gain entry to the London Marathon on this day, The 'Other' Run' is the perfect substitute. The 6 hour timed challenge is a great chance to put all that training into practice and run alongside like-minded people at this fun and friendly event.
Competitors will complete laps of a 5.3k lap throughout Brandon 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, and runners can end their race at any point. 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.
