SATURN - Hemerodromoi Run (Richard William's 300th Marathon)

Saturday, 29 October 2022 @ 09:00

Come and join us and help Saturn Running celebrate Richard William's 300th Marathon which he has been using to raise money for charity!

Richard wanted to go €˜old school€™ for the medal theme for this run so we have designed a beautiful 3D medal which gives a nod to the ancient Greek runners. Ancient Greece was famous for its running messengers, who were named Hemerodromoi, meaning €œday runners€, this is the inspiration behind the medal that every participant will receive.

All abilities are welcome at our super-inclusive events and we also welcome walkers too.

Distance & Time: This is a 7hr Time Challenge event which allows you full control over the distance you want to run. The minimum distance is 5km, which is part of a full lap. A full lap is 4.37 miles (7km) and you can run as many or as few of these laps as you wish in the 7hr time limit. Chip timing will be available at this event if we have over 50 runners.

Course: The course is along a beautiful stretch of the River Thames. It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required.

Medals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic medal.

Distance Pins: We have distance pins for all runners who do a half-marathon or more. There will be a distance pin for all runners who complete either a half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, 50km or Ultra in the 7hr time limit which can be attached to your medal ribbon.

Goody Bag: Absolutely! You have earned these replacement calories after all, so all our finishers get a great goody bag. You will have a selection of goodies to choose from. As well as our standard goody bag, we have a vegan goody bag too. Please remember to let us know if you are vegan or if you prefer a vegan goody bag when you enter and we can have this ready for you.

Aid Table: We have managed to maintain our aid table throughout the pandemic with our COVID secure policies, approved by various SAG and Public Health teams across the UK. We have now returned to our full aid table selection, however we will serve you rather than a return to help yourself. You can rely on a great selection of savoury, sweet, fruit, cheese and vegan selections at the aid table - great if you are running long distances.

Special Event: If our event is a special event for you, for instance your 50th, 99th, 100th, 150th, 200th, 250th etc. marathon or half marathon then please let us know. We will provide you with a great number with your name and the event date on it. Also, if it is your birthday, again let us know and we will get you a special number for your birthday!

Toilet & Changing Facilities: Toilets are available at the start / finish area inside the venue HQ. Changing and showing facilities are available.

Parking: There is parking available at the venue.

Other Info: There will be an area for kit bags to be left. This area is not watched and any bags left will be at the runner's own risk. Baggage areas are subject to COVID rule changes.
