Route information
This 6 hour event (if you start at 9am) involves a beautiful 5.3k lap through the forest and paths of Brandon Country Park, set in the heart of Thetford Forest.
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. Note you will only have 4 hours to complete your chosen distance if you start at 11am.
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.
