Our evening runs were very popular in 2016 and so they’re back this year and with an extra date for 2017.
The Black Phoenix event will be held on Saturday 10th June in the evening on the same weekend as our Thames Path Potter events, so there is the opportunity to run two events on the same day and then come back for more the following day making it a cheeky triple. Why not attempt three full marathons in two days, or just see how you feel and take it one step at a time along the Thames towpath.
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 and the medal will form part of a set of three, so why not collect them all – Black Phoenix, Dark Phoenix and Night Phoenix. 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.
