Phoenix Running is inviting you to join us for our annual Christmas 'Advent' run down on the towpath and everyone who runs and registers an interest will automatically go into our grand prize draw. Each year we hold a Christmas Advent prize draw via Facebook video at 7.30pm on 1st December where we give away some epic prizes. We've also got a massive advent calendar nutcracker medal at 160mm tall and in 2022 we'll be presenting this in blue & red - this festive fella will crack your Christmas nuts for sure.
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 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.
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.
