Our ‘evening’ series of 6-hour themed events are back in 2017, with the return of the Dark Phoenix. This event will be held on the same day as our Summer Marathon 2017, so there is the opportunity to run two full marathons with us on the same day, or, after your marathon in the morning, come along and run a shorter distance in the evening and get one our awesome Dark Phoenix medals .
The run is a 6 hour timed event where you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like on a 3.28 mile, out and back, course along the beautiful river Thames. Complete one lap and you qualify for the bespoke finishers’ medal, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 6 hours.
Running will start at 4.00pm and there is the potential to finish at dusk or in the dark depending on how quickly and how far you run!
There will, of course, be the awesome glow in the dark bling – these medals were a massive hit in 2016.
Don’t forget – you must use a head torch if running after 8.00pm. We highly advise that all runners bring a head torch, even if you expect to be finished before this time.
There is a 6 hour cut off, so ideally all runners will be finished by 10pm.
Places will be strictly limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.
Registration opens from 3.00pm
This event is fully sanctioned by the 100 Marathon Club.
The course has no elevation gain / loss overall, making this a flat and fast route.
