How far will you decide to run on the day, it's entirely up to you in our 6hr timed event! One lap of 5k will gain you legendary status and your well deserved, bespoke finishers medal and of course your goody bag! There will only be 150 entries available so don't leave it too late to enter! After the event, feel free to relax in the bar where refreshments will be available and then come and cheer the remaining runners home as they come through the start/finish area to finish their race or go round again!


The gently undulating, traffic-free course on the tarmac footpaths around the Abbey Fields Open Space in Colchester will give you the opportunity to run as many or as few laps as you wish within the time limit of 6 hours. The loops will be just over 5km in distance and one is all you need to complete to be a finisher and get your well-deserved medal! If you wish to run further it is entirely up to you on the day, you will need to do 4 loops for a half marathon, 8 laps to cover full marathon distance, and then if you choose to continue, the clock will be your only limiting factor! Don't worry, you don't have to count your laps yourself, the event will be fully chip timed so you can just concentrate on the running!
