World Diabetes Day Run



Age 18 & over

  • 6 hrs trail running


The day marks the birthday of Frederick Banting, who is noted as the co-discoverer of insulin. 2 members of our team are type 1 diabetics and so have to rely on insulin injections several times a day. 3.1 mile mile loop - flat tarmac path with a short section on gravel path. Complete as many or as few laps as you wish within the 6 hour time limit. For those wanting to go for long distances, a 1/2 marathon complete 4 laps + short out & back, marathon 8 laps + short out & back and ultra 9+ laps. As long as you complete one lap then you will be a finisher and receive an official time and post race gift. We will keep you going with drinks as well as sweet and savoury snacks. All finishers will receive a medal. To try and keep costs down and have more funds available to donate to charity we will not be handing out our usual standard of medal.
