    Cyclopark Summer Series 10 Challenges in 10 Days

    Wrotham Rd, Gravesend DA11 7NP, UKView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    In August 2019 we'll be having our Summer 10 Challenges in 10 Days event. This will be somewhat different in character from our Winter "Coastal" series as it'll all be out of the same venue, on the same route, so will be as logistically straightforward as possible.

    We're holding it over two weekends and the Bank Holiday Monday and in the summer school holidays so those who are limited on holiday can take part as only requires 5 days of vacation time and likewise those involved in the education world can also take part.

    There are three hotels within walking distance and a brand new Travelodge within crawling distance! So things should be as simple as possible, aside from the running of course, and that is up to you! Each day will be a six hour challenge event, you can enter one day, two days, any number of days up to and including all ten! What distance you run each day is totally up to you...

    From the organiser

    We've been very fortunate to have been granted permission to hold a 100 mile ultra event out of Brooks Farm, Reculver Kent. The kind farmers there allow us to use their land and facilities to hold a running event and 98% of the route is on their land which does make for some lovely running! (And a huge barn makes a brilliant base camp!) The main event will be a 100 mile endurance run of 15 times 6.67 mile loops. In addition we'll hold a 24 hour Challenge Event, a 6 hour timed challenge on both the Saturday and Sunday and a Pacer Challenge to complete as many 6.67 mile loops as possible in the time limit chosen.
