Band of Runners Christmas Special

Are you ready for this? Dust off those Santa hats and reindeer antlers because 'The Band of Runners' hosted by Phoenix Running are back with another Christmas Special!! It'll be on what's becoming their usual first weekend of December and there's going to be a completely new Christmas themed BoR medal up for grabs too! Rumour has it Santa himself might be paying us a flying visit and dishing out some Christmas cheers!

This is one of our 6 hour timed events where you choose - from 5km to 10k, half to marathon to ultra, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.3km, 3.28 mile, out and back, course along the beautiful river Thames. We welcome all abilities of runner - complete one lap and you're both a finisher and a winner in our eyes, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 6 hour time limit and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers' medal.

Not sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don't even need to decide in advance - simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if it feels right.

Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter. Minimum distance is 3.28 miles or as far as you can go in 6 hours. Off road trail, the terrain is riverside towpath. The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.


We provide a physical running service and by entering our events you are purchasing an actual run, either by attending our events or by running the event virtually yourself. All participants in our events, both attended and virtual, will receive a free giveaway medal / memento from your run.
