Overview

It's a 7-hour cut off with a mass start. Your race, your pace, your distance!

This race offers you a number of distance choices - 5K, 10K, Half, Full or Ultra.

There is a 7-hour event starting at 9am or a 5-hour event starting at 11am. 

Those doing under a half marathon distance will travel along an out and back, being turned around required, making it a very social route. The half marathon will be one loop, 2 loops for the full marathon and then the run to the 5K turnaround point for an ultra.     

There will be an aid station of drinks and nibbles every 10K at the Race HQ/Base Camp which is located at the start/lap point.

There will be a bespoke medal for the event, which you will receive at the end of the race. Or if you choose the 'green' lucky dip option, you will choose from a selection of previous medals.

This event is part of Windmill Way Wander.
