Track Wars 24 - INDOORS

Track Wars 24 is going INDOORS! Yes, you read that right - we're off to the rather awesome Lee Valley Athletics Centre this September for the one and only indoor Track 24 hour endurance event in the UK. This is a 200m indoor Mondo DYNAMIK track with banked corners and spaces will be very limited indeed.

We'll also have our usual separate morning, afternoon and evening 6 hour events running in the outside lanes (see separate events on our website for those). These extra events really keep the atmosphere going for the full 24 hours and you can run a 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon or indeed any distance you like at our 6 hour events.

At our first ever outdoor track event many moons ago we had so many folks who thought they'd simply come and run and 'get it over with'. The results couldn't have been more different with a party like atmosphere and so many people commenting on how much they enjoyed the experience. So much so, that they all came back for Track Wars II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII and now we're up to XXIII and going indoors so we don't have to worry about the weather. Will the fun just never end!

These events do tend to sell out in advance and we have a strict cap of 100 runners at any one time on the track (50 in any one direction on the indoor track), so don't miss out this time and please consider entering early!

Track Wars XXIII will be our first indoor 24 hour timed event, specially modified for the 200m running track. As with all our timed events you can complete as many or as few laps as you like and once you do one lap you are both a finisher and a winner in our eyes. The only real difference is that this time one lap is 200m on an indoor running track!

We expect many folks to come and run more traditional distances so here's how these translate;

  • It's 25 laps for 5km (meaning you complete exactly 5km)
  • It's 50 laps for 10km (meaning you complete exactly 10km)
  • It's 105.5 laps so 106 laps for 21.2km (meaning you complete a half marathon)
  • It's 211 laps for 42.2km (meaning you complete a marathon)
  • It's 218 laps for 43.6km (meaning you complete an ultra marathon or 27 miles plus)
  • It's 403 laps for 80.5km (meaning you complete a 50 miler)
  • It's 604 laps for 120.8km (meaning you complete 75 miles)
  • It's 805 laps for 161km (meaning you complete a 100 miler)

NOTE: This event will have electronic chip timing so we can provide you with live updates as you run.

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 200m or as far as you can go in 6 & 24 hours.

Registration from 7:15am.

We provide a physical running service and by entering our events you are purchasing an actual run, either by attending our events or by running the event virtually yourself. All participants in our events, both attended and virtual, will receive a free giveaway medal / memento from your run.
