Track Wars is back by popular demand at the lovely new running track in Walton on Thames! Our first ever track event was in March 2019 and 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, when they didn't think they would! So, here is Track Wars II.
The first event sold out well in advance and we have a strict cap of 100 runners, so don't miss out this time and enter early!
Track Wars II will be a chance to get your hands on one of our epic 'Excalibur' sword medals, so if you've missed out on one of the Excalibur series so far, it's a chance to catch up. Or it's simply a chance to get your hands on one of our best medals ever!
Track Wars II will be one of our 6 hour timed events specially modified for the 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 400m on a running track!
We expect many folks to come and run more traditional distances so here's how these translate;
* 13 laps for 5.2km (meaning you complete at least 5km)
* 25 laps for 10km (meaning you complete exactly 10km)
* 53 laps for 21.2km (meaning you complete a half marathon)
* 105.5 laps for 42.2km (meaning you complete a marathon)
* 108 laps for 43.2km (meaning you complete an ultra marathon or 27 miles plus)
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. Minimum distance is 400m or as far as you can go in 6 hours.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
