Track Wars IX - Pop-Up Evening Run

We are delighted to be able to offer Track Wars IX - our track event with an evening stage, where you'll need your head torches as we'll have no floodlights on at the track!

Track Wars IX is an afternoon / evening event with a difference, we'll start from around 2:30pm and run round and round and into the evening. Sunset is 5.45pm, so from then on you'll need your head torches as we won't be turning the floodlights on - that's right it's a track event with a night stage!

The event will be held on the same day as the morning Track Wars VIII, 6 hour event, with an hour's gap after that event finishes, so you can, of course, do both events!

These events do tend to sell out in advance and we have a strict cap of 100 runners, so don't miss out this time and enter early!

Track Wars IX 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;

  • It's 13 laps for 5.2km (meaning you complete at least 5km)
  • It's 25 laps for 10km (meaning you complete exactly 10km)
  • It's 53 laps for 21.2km (meaning you complete a half marathon)
  • It's 105.5 laps for 42.2km (meaning you complete a marathon)
  • It's 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.

Don't forget - you must use a head torch if running after 5.45pm. We highly advise that all runners bring a head torch, even if you expect to be finished before this time.

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 400m or as far as you can go in 6 hours.

Registration opens from 2pm.

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.
