Our Doughnut Dash is back by popular demand and this time its Caramel vs. Iced Ring - which one are you?
The medals are totally awesome, double sided, magnetic and with reversible ribbons, so f you really can't decide then simply have both!
The Doughnut Dash is going to be one of our 'Battle Runs' although the real battle is how many doughnuts can you eat.
What's a battle run? Well, when you register, you'll get your race number as usual, however this will dictate which direction you are going to run in along the Thames towpath. It's odd vs. evens. At the start line those wearing odd numbers will face east and those wearing even numbers will face west. Then when the start signal goes that's the route you'll complete your laps on and stick to for the duration of your run. 'Odds' and 'Evens' will meet each time you come back to the aid station.
Once the event is finished we'll add up the total number of laps completed by 'odds' and the total number of laps completed by 'evens' and there will be a winning team and bragging rights!
Last time we did this; there were just a handful of laps between the two, so it's always worth doing that extra lap!
And don't worry, if you've come with a friend and end up with opposing numbers and really want to run together - just let us know at registration and that will be just fine.
This is one of our 6 hour timed event where you choose - from 5km to 10k, half to marathon to ultra, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.3km, 3.28 mile, out and back, course along the beautiful river Thames. We welcome all abilities of runner - complete one lap and you're both a finisher and a winner in our eyes, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 6 hour time limit and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers' medal.
Not sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don't even need to decide in advance - simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if it feels right.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
