What is the Daventry Challenge, where is it and when is it?
The Daventry Challenge is at Daventry Country Park, Northern Way, Daventry, NN1 2JB on Wednesday 26th September 2018 at 09:00.
How far is the race?
You decide! The 3.6-mile out and back route means your race can be just over 5k or even over 60k. You decide how many laps you're going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance you'll need to complete 8 laps (28.8 miles) and a half marathon will be 4 laps (14.4 miles). The course is relatively flat, with a few small inclines, and the surface is varied but given the time of year it should allow for good running.
Early Bird fee (before 26/03/18) - £16 (£18 unaffiliated)
Standard fee (26/03/18 - 26/08/18) - £18 (£20 unaffiliated)
Late Fee - (27/08/18 - 24/09/18) £22 (£24 unaffiliated)
No entries on the day
There is an entry limit. Once the event gets down to the last places we'll endeavor to make people aware through social media and emails (join the mailing list here). Once the event is full a waiting list will be created. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on this.
You do have to pay to park (£2.00 at the time of writing). This money goes directly to the country park, it's a great space that needs money and this is their main revenue stream. That said, be a hero and car share, save money and the world!
The course route can be found here.
The majority of the course is over crushed stone and, dependent on the weather, could be muddy. There are tree roots, a few small sections where the pathways are more natural and a section of single track running. The route goes around the reservoir into the woodland and around the meadow. This should give you something different to look at on each lap! The course is runnable throughout.
There is a map at the bottom of the page, use the postcode NN11 2JB for sat navs. It's 20 minutes from M1 Junction 16. The closest train station is Long Buckby.
