This summer some of Saxons, Normans and Vikings Marathons very favourite runners are incredibly turning 50 years old and in celebration of this momentous occasion we're going to have a special...
"5-0" themed event... the Hawaii 5-0 Challenge! Folks of all ages are more than welcome though to come along, I have it on good authority that there will be cake... Theresa Massey and Julia Wellings, affectionately known as the "Twinnies" are turning 50 along with Clive Hearn, affectionately known as "Jacky's Husband" (she's the lady who has made and brought fudge to 100s of SVN events). This lovely trio of folk have graced quite literally hundreds of events since we met them in 2014 and have all compiled incredibly impressive long distance running records. There will of course be Hawaiian 5-0 bling, am sure there'll be some Hawaiian themed nibbles, cake, fudge and some running, what's not to like? Please consider joining us for what will hopefully be a sunny, fun day out! The event will be a six hour timed challenge event based out of the Cyclopark Complex at Gravesend (although the routes won't actually be in the Cyclopark area we're just using their facilities and parking) and the route will be a mixture of trail, bike paths and tarmac and not flat either, but not too hilly either before you panic! Complete as many loops as you wish within the time limit, consume as many goodies as you wish within the time limit. Run a marathon, run an ultra, run less, as long as you complete one loop you're a finisher! We do warn you though,as with many of our events, you may consume more calories than you burn off, but just in case you don't the goody bags will contain a decent amount of chocolate! It's our aim that this event makes an impactful difference to the Cyclopark charity in a positive fashion and as such £5 from each entry fee will be donated directly to the Cyclopark Trust to aid them in maintaining this environment and facility. Please explore the race and consider joining us!
