The Summer Ready Run - 7.7.24

Updated: Jul 10

Wow what an amazing day we had with all of you, despite reports of thunder and lightning all very very frightening, it was actually a scorcher of a day, until it starting raining in true British Summer fashion of course! What everyone achieved today is nothing short of amazing, well done to each and every one of you.

It was great meeting so many of you for the first time and also seeing so many regular faces, some we haven't seen for a while, its is so nice to catch up with all of you.

We had such an lovely day with you all, it brings us so much joy to witness so many of you completing your first 5ks, 10ks, first Half Marathons & First marathons and a couple of first Ultras too, so many of you achieving new PB's and a new range of course records taken today too.

One of the highlights of our events is the social side where we get to chat with you at the end and hear some of the incredible journeys that you are all on.

Today's event Routes: The Gonzo route, a 5.3k undulating trail run with absolutely amazing views across the Nene Valley Country park at Ferry Meadows


Marshals and Support:  We are so lucky to have the best marshals in the world. Once again we would like to extend our gratitude to all the brilliant marshals who ensured a smooth and fun experience for everyone. Their commitment to making the events enjoyable for all participants is remarkable. Considering the weather they were truly amazing and we had so many great comments about how they really made the day special.


Pictures and Memories: Remember to check out the amazing pictures captured during today's run! They will be uploaded to our Zig Zag running group on Facebook. Feel free to tag yourself and your friends to share the moments.


What’s new – We have our own Zig Zag Running App.  This can be found in the app store on your mobile device.  It’s a quick way to view these results, access events and see what we have on offer in our shop in terms of merchandise and virtual entries.


All medals are ordered through to end of August with some of the next few events either sold out or getting close so don’t leave it too long if you have your eye on a specific piece of bling for your collection.


That said, we attach the race diary for the whole of 2024 and into 2025 so you can start planning your adventures.


What's next? - Run For Ice Cream - a day at the beautiful Brandon Country Park in Brandon, Thetford, from 5k to Ultra distances available. There are a few spaces available if you wish to join us! we also have an ice cream van at the finish and every runner will get an ice cream instead of cake.

Next Years Event - if you enjoyed today’s event and want to come back next year, it will open in the next few days and will be held on 6th July 2025, back to Ferry Meadows again. We also had a few questions today about our 100 mile event which is at the farm next year, more details are on our website and its suitably named Farmmageddon!

In a couple of weeks we are also also hosting The Great Barrow Challenge (10 Events in 10 Days) for the second year.  Another great opportunity to push your boundaries and see what you can achieve.

Attached you'll find the results from today, course records and events diary.  Congratulations to those who got their own PR or PB’s.


Until the next run
