Your organiser

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. It just didn't stop there, over the years pushing herself, this self motivation eventually evolved into marathon running. Zoe has completed Marathons, Ultra Marathons, 5 Marathons in 5 Days, 52 marathons in 52 weeks, 10 marathons in 10 days, 100 marathons in 100 weeks, a 50k & a 50 mile Ultra marathon, with her target next of completing a 100 mile race. ​ Stephens background is in Hypnosis, therapy, sports coaching and Entertainment. ​ During this time we have both gained valuable experience in what it takes to organise a good marathon, we have also both met and made friends with some wonderful people who are such fun to be around, with useful advice, assistance and encouragement throughout the country and even in other corners of the world Our mission is to give our runners the best experience and encourage others to achieve their goals and dreams and to also impart the ideals of good sportsmanship, community and health.

Route description
Route description

In this 6-hour event, run as far as you want during the time allowed and push your own boundaries. With an easy-to-navigate 5.3km lap through the grounds, focus on your own pace and complete as many laps as you can.

Run as much or as little as you want, go all 6 hours, or rest between laps at the aid station, take it at your own pace.

The course is a 5.3km lap of the grounds, with only a small section of the course on a rarely-used public footpath. With small inclines rather than hills, this course is primarily flat and mainly follows an undulating pathway.

Whether you're taking on your first ever 5k or you're looking for a new challenge in the ultra, this multi-terrain, mostly-flat undulating course is ready for you.

And for your final lap...As long as you are leaving base camp by 5:59:59 you get to run the course again.
