Sunday 26 January 2020
On the second day of our usual January weekend in Essex we have something rather special lined up with yet another new type of Phoenix medal up for grabs this year. As we did in 2019, we're launching this one under the code name 'Challenger One' (but that's not the real event name and we'll update that in due course) and it will be be a series of up to twelve 'challenges' for you to complete across 2020. Each one is an awesome running event in its own right with its own awesome medal, so you can choose to complete one, two, three or perhaps all of them!
This is one of our 6 hour timed events, with a marathon specific option, where you choose from 5km to ultra marathon, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.3km, 3.28 mile, looped course along the beautiful River Stort waterways. 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.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
Timed Event - Minimum distance is 3.28 miles or as far as you can go in 6 hours.
Off road trail and waterside towpath.
The overall course has almost no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
There is NO 'on the day entry'
