Fancy a running challenge with a difference? Think you could run 1 mile, on the hour, every hour, for 24 consecutive hours? Easy - right?.
Then look no further than the 'P24 - The Longest Day' to be held on Saturday 19th June 2021 which is very close to the longest daylight day of the year - the summer solstice. This event was hugely popular in 2020 and attracted and tested runners of all abilities.
The concept is simple - starting at 8.00am you run 1 mile at any pace you like. You can run out and back, up and down your road, round the block, in your garden, even on a treadmill. Then at 9.00am you do it again, any pace you like. Same again at 10, 11, 12, 1, 2......on the hour, every hour, 1 mile, run, walk or crawl, you get the idea. And repeat for 24 hours, running your final mile at 7.00am, on the hour, on Sunday 20th June 2021.
You'll get a bespoke, sequential BIB when you sign up and then on the day we'll ask you to share some of your miles and stories to our Facebook groups and then submit one total result through Phoenix World at the end (full details provided in your confirmation and final event info. Emails).
This is a challenge for literally anyone of any running ability. If you're new to running, fancy something completely different or fancy your first foray into endurance challenges, running at night, trying out a 24 hour challenge with a difference then this is for you. We also have the P12 - our 12 hour challenge running simultaneously on the same day.
And if you're a seasoned ultra runner, then we'd love to have you aboard and this might not be quite as straightforward as you think.
There will, of course, be the suitably epic medal sent out immediately after the challenge to all finishers.
Sounds simple right?
