Introducing the Phoenix Leviathon 50 Ultra
Whether you're a seasoned Ultra runner, or you fancy having a go at a 50-miler and have yet to conquer the distance then this is the event for you.
We're delighted to be hosting our first 50-mile ultra run and it's named the Leviathon, as a play on words, because we think it's a bit of a monster; a bit of a mythical sea monster to be precise!
The Leviathon is a 50 mile lapped event which will be hosted at the same time as the first or two marathons in our Numbers Game Double, meaning that you have an 'on the day' fall back option. For anyone who completes a full marathon distance of 26.2 miles (in the Leviathon event) and then decides to stop at that point, then you effectively drop down to marathon distance. This will be allowed on the day with no prior notice and you will still be classed as a marathon finisher in the Numbers Game event and receive that medal and a published marathon finish time.
Otherwise keep going to complete the full 50 mile monster!
And the medal - well it really is a monster!
The cut off is 12 hours.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
Registration opens from 9am
The terrain is riverside towpath with the overall course having no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
There is NO 'on the day entry'
