Saturday 18 May 2019
On Saturday 18th May 2019 we're inviting you to come and join us for the next event in our Excalibur Series 2019.
The Excalibur Five shall henceforth be known as 'The Long One'.
This will be a special extended time limit event where we're going to allow an 8 hour time limit and as long as you're out on your last lap at 7 hours, 45 minutes then you can take even longer than 8 hours! The idea here is to get you to run just a little bit further than you have before and it doesn't matter if that's 5km, 1km or 100m.
The Excalibur Five is the 'Resolute Conquest' where you get to test your resolve over a longer time frame. The idea of many of our running events is to get you to push your limits, just a little bit, and to try new things. The Excalibur Five is a chance to perhaps complete your first 5km, first 10km, first half marathon, marathon or even your first Ultramarathon or to run your further distance ever!
Our Excalibur events are a series of twelve running events or 'conquests' for you to complete across 2019. 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!
The Excalibur Five is an 8 hour timed event, with a marathon specific option, where you choose from 5km / 10km / half / marathon 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(s).
Places will be strictly limited.
Registration open from 8am
Off road trail, the terrain is riverside towpath. The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
