Hercules is finally back for the second of his Labours and this one is a night run!
Each Hercules trial is an awesome running event in its own right with an awesome medal, so you can choose to complete one, two, three, seven or perhaps all of them!
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 and so the Hercules Two is a chance to perhaps complete your very first evening run.
We'll be taking you on an epic journey as you complete the 12 labours of Hercules; from the very first trail where you'll face the Nemean Lion; through to the likes of the Lernean Hydra and the Erymanthian Boar; all the way to the final showdown with Cerberus!
The second trial of Hercules 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.
Running will start at 4.00pm and there is the potential to finish at dusk or in the dark depending on how quickly and how far you run.
Don't forget - you must use a head torch if running after 9.00pm. We highly advise that all runners bring a head torch, even if you expect to be finished before this time.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
