PHOENIX Running is inviting you to come and join us for a D-Day 75th Anniversary Run Series!
In fact we are inviting you to join us for a 'TRIPLE' celebration from June 6th to June 8th when we'll be celebrating by Air, Land and Sea!
On the 6th June 75 years ago the Allied Forces invaded at Normandy. This was the largest land, sea and air invasion in history and it was the beginning of the end of World War II
Our own D-Day runs will be held from Thursday 6th June 2019 to Saturday 8th June 2019 and are 6 hour timed events 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, 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.
Needless to say the medals for these will be rather special..!!
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
