If you're planning on a double marathon in a day, you can enter both the early and late event AND get yourself a 50 Mile T-Shirt as you will have completed over 50 miles during the day.
To receive this price, you MUST have entered on or before Friday 16th April 2021 so we can pass the discounted price from the manufacturer onto you. Entries after this date, you can still order the T-Shirt, however the T-Shirt would need to be at our full price of £32.00.
About The Event:
Join us for The Greatest Show-run and earn yourself a fantastic themed medal. We have 3 events on during the day, so there is plenty of choice for you!
If you sign up to either one of the 'Timed Events' you will get the fantastic Greatest Show-run Medal. If you sign up to both 'Timed Events' then your second medal with be our Saturn Planets medal.
Alternatively you can enter our Special 50 mile event where you will receive the Greatest Shown-run Medal and also a technical 50 mile event t-shirt. To guarantee the t-shirt size you want is available on the day, you will need to enter by 16th April 2021. However, you can enter after this date and we will arrange for your size to be made and delivered to you after the event.
Each of the Timed Events is a 7 hour event. However, if you are entering both events, we would ask you to try and finish your first event by 2pm so we can give you your first medal and you are able to attend the second race briefing. You can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of our 5 mile (8.0km) lapped course as you wish within the 7 hour limit.
Please be aware if you are planning on running after 9:00pm in the late event, you will have to have a head torch / chest torch. We will not be able to let you run without this.
We will have third party medical cover at this event in order to help keep you running. However, if the medical team decide you are not able to continue we would ask you to stop.
You can say 'This Is Me' each time you get back to our fantastically well stocked aid station, which includes a great selection for vegan runners. Hopefully, this will make you 'Come Alive' and you will decide 'Never Enough' and head out for another lap. Once you decide you have ran for as long or as far as you want, you can ring out, join the finishers on 'The Other Side' and check your time to see if 'A Million Dreams' have come true with a personal best.
We welcome runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least the 5km will earn an iconic themed medal. Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We also have a 50k option for those wishing to run this distance.
We will order sufficient pins so that runners doing both timed events and the 50 mile run receive a mini-pin.
There will be a distance pin for all runners who complete either a half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, 50km, Ultra or 50 mile distance in the 7hr / 15hr time limit which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every lap. The toilets are situated in the Football Club which is available for our runners use from 6:00am and for the entire event.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out.
Minimum distance is 5km or as far as you can go in 7 hours.
