Come and join us for a great day of running at the UCLAN sports arena in Cottam. The run will be starting in the grounds of the sports arena before heading out onto the Lancaster canal towpath.

Runners will head towards Preston before dropping down through the canal locks and following the millennium Ribble link. From here the course will take you through the tree lined paths of Haslam park, which will loop round the park and lake, before returning to the canal, at the far side of the park.

You will then head back towards the sports arena to cross the finish line.

The course will be over a 5K loop. The 10K will be 2 loops of the course, 1/2 marathon will be 4 loops + short out/back, marathon 8 loops + short out/back, ultra will be as many laps as you wish within 6 hour limit. (NB: last lap must start within 5hr 30 min).

All runners will receive a bespoke medal as well as post run goodies. There will be lots of snacks, drinks and plenty of encouragement. The UCLAN sports arena has all the facilities you would expect, changing rooms, toilets, showers, cafe and free parking. This event is being held as part of a 3 day event series. Check out the other days too and join in with more running!
