The Easter Challenge 2023
Come and join us at our exclusive venue at Suffolk Running Centre, Church Road, Bury St Edmunds, IP29 5AX
It's a six hour event, run as far as you can during the six hours and a little bit more if you're lucky, as long as you are leaving the Base Camp by 5:59:59 you get to run another lap.
You can run as much or little as you want to, you can rest between laps if you like and head out for some more.
You may be completing your first official 5k,10k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or even ultra-Marathon, or it may be your 100th or 1000th.
This race is also ideal for those who want to try and achieve a Marathon distance and for those who also want the option to push a little further, possibly an ultra but without the complications of trail ultras, with next to no navigation, no kit required, an aid station every lap and straightforward logistics.
We will be utilizing the Denham Flats route (road route) which is a 6.55 mile out and back sociable loop.
On this course you leave the centre and go out through the Barrow Village towards Denham. At around 3km you will see Ely Cathedral in the distance.
You will also get the chance to run past the deer farm.
This is a super easy course to navigate
It is however important to note the tricky crossing near the corner by the shops due to parked cars.
Parking is also included in your entry price.
The Race HQ/Base Camp is located at the start and Lap point and at the base camp we will have our water/aid station.
Upon entry you will receive an email confirmation from your entry portal and Zig Zag Running. This will also contain the link to the race briefing information pack.
We have designed a Bespoke medal for the event, which you will receive at the end of the race. Or if you choose the lucky dip finisher option, you will choose from a selection of previous or finisher medal.
