Embrace The Race
Sunday, 20 January 2019
Our first event at the former RAF airbase which was also the base for US nuclear weapons. In 1982 the Embrace The Base protest occurred with 30,000 women linking arms around the perimeter of the site. Earn yourself an amazing themed medal during our 6.5 hour timed challenge - choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of a 3.28 mile, 5.3km out and back as you wish within the 6.5hr limit. We welcome all runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap will earn a fabulous Frozen character themed medal. Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We also provide a 50k option for those wanting to run this distance.
For those runners who choose to run 4 laps or more, you will also earn Saturn Running half marathon, marathon or ultra pins which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The course is classified as a trail run and is flat and fast.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles. The toilets are situated in the Greenham Common Control Tower which is available for our runners use from 8am and for the entire event. There is also a café situated in the Control Tower should you wish to use it. There are 3 carparks at Greenham Common, open from 8am.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out.
Minimum distance is 3.28 miles or as far as you can go in 6.5 hours.
