Phoenix Running is inviting you join us for our 'Purple Dragon' run which is a standalone running event and also day 1 of our Dragon 5in5 run series. The 'Dragon 5' events are 5 days of runs, where you can choose to do 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5 days, or any combination in between. If you're thinking of venturing further into the realms of long distance or multi-day running, then this 5in5 could well be for you.
The Purple Dragon is one of our special 7 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 7 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.
Minimum distance is 3.28 miles or as far as you can go in 7 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.
