Thursday 30 August 2018
The Once Upon a Run - Day 1 will be held on Thursday 30th August 2018 and is the first of a brand new series of nursery rhyme themed runs.
You really won't want to miss the medals for the once upon a run series - they were designed by my little daughter and carry on our awesome medal-magnet series of medals. There are undoubtedly our finest works to date.
We're also delighted to have been invited back to run this event on one of two beautiful routes along the 'Saturn trail' towpaths in West Byfleet and the River Wey.
This is one of our 6 hour timed event 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 canal and River Wey towpath near West Byfleet. 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.
Not sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don't even need to decide in advance - simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if it feels right.
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 6 hours.
Off road trail, the terrain is canal and riverside towpath.
The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
