About the Event

The starters pistol will be ready and waiting for the first Race of 2021
In our new exclusive Venue at Horseheath Racecourse, Great Thurlow, Cambridge, CB21 4QP Whilst we will have limited numbers, We will have virtual spaces available for each day for anyone who wants the run on the day for the medal but cannot get to the venue on the day. It's a six hour event, run as far as you can during the six hours and a little bit more if you're lucky, as long as you are leaving the Base Camp by 5:59:59 you get to run another lap, we have designed a 5.3k route which encompasses the grounds of Horseheath racecourse, 90% of the route is within the grounds and a small portion is on a rarely used public footpath. You can run as much or little as you want to, you can rest between laps if you like and take in the music at the aid station, all whilst socially distancing of course. You may be completing your first official 5k,10k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or even ultra-Marathon, or it may be your 100th or 1000th, the location is pretty self-contained, making this an intimate event with us having exclusive use of the area. We have plenty of open space at the venue to ensure we can all stay socially distanced and space ourselves adequately, It's also ideal for those who want to try and achieve a Marathon distance and for those who also want the option to push a little further, possibly an ultra but without the complications of trail ultras, with next to no navigation, no kit required, an aid station every lap and straightforward logistics.
