Training runs can be lonely and boring and it’s also hard to try new things out when you are far from home! Would you like your training run to be where you can run with others? And it be a race as well? Somewhere that you can try out different strategies for a race that’s coming up? And where you get something for all the hard work that you have put in?
The course is a 10km loop and you decide on the day if you want to run 10km, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or an Ultra Marathon. If on the day you only want to run 10km, then you can stop and still be in with a chance to win the 10km race!
If you want to carry on then you have the option to complete the Half, Full or Ultra Marathon distance and maybe win one of those races. Or maybe just see if you can complete an Ultra Marathon for the first time?
Because it’s a loop, you will be able to have a large drop bag so you will be able to try different shoes, backpack, nutrition and have anything in your drop bag to help or try out!
