HERCULES Labour Seven



Age 11 & over

  • 7 hrs trail running


Our original HERCULES runs were a series of twelve running events or 'labours' for you to complete across a calendar year, but Covid interrupted things as we reached labour #6 back in 2020. Well, after a bit of a gap, we 're back in 2024 with labours 7 - 12 and there will also be some 'Hercules Returns' catch up runs for those who missed any of the first 1-6 events. Each 'labour' is an awesome running event in its own right with its own awesome medal, so you can choose to complete one, two, three or perhaps all of them! The seventh trial of Hercules is one of our 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.
