If you only do a couple of Phoenix events this year or even just one, then this or the Golden Phoenix are the ones to look at!
What can we tell you about it at this stage?
Well, in 2018 we brought you the Explorer - the world's 'largest' finisher's medal and this year we're aiming to bring you the 'best' medals you've ever seen. A bold statement by anyone's standards (and clearly a subjective thing), but if you know our medals, then when we ask you to 'trust us', we hope you will.
Why are we doing this?
Just because we can really!
Each year we intend to do an event or two where the medal(s) and the event(s) cost more than the entry fee. We absolutely love medals and this way we try and give you something you literally can't get anywhere else!
In 2019 we think we've outdone ourselves yet again and are aiming to bring you medals you've never seen the like of before.
Please Note: because of the above the entry fee is a bit more expensive than we'd like at just over £50 - it's the only way we can make the events happen. However, we're confident; really confident; that if you love medals, you will love these!!
Due to the extra-special and bespoke nature of this event entry will close around three months before the event dates, so in early March. You won't be able to use a credit to enter this event, including marshal's credits, and you won't be able to transfer your entry to another runner within 3 months of the event date itself.
All will become clear towards the end of 2018 and we're aiming to display the medals at the London Marathon Expo in April 2019.
The Silver Phoenix is one of our special extended 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.
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.
9:30am (registration open from 8.30am)
Off road trail, the terrain is riverside towpath. The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
