Join us for our special Save The Rhino Run with Chris "Rhino Boy" Green. The aim of this run is to raise money and awareness for Save The Rhino. The medal is awesome and definitely one to collect.
Charity: Chris has run many marathons dressed in his Rhino outfit, raising awareness and money for Save The Rhino. We are delighted to be able to hold an event to assist his tireless efforts.
On entry you can give a voluntary £3 donation to Save The Rhino which Saturn Running will match. As well as this, we will be donating at least £1 of everyone's entry fee to Save The Rhino - lets see how much we can raise!
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. This makes the event perfect for all abilities.
Course: The course is around well maintained footpaths in the Lee Valley Country Park. It is a beautiful setting, with wildlife and great scenery. The course is flat and fast, a great one for attempting a PB. No navigational experience is required with the course fully signed.
Medals: As long as you complete at least 5km (which is part of a lap), you will be an official finisher and you will receive our fantastic medal.
Mini-Me Pin Medals: We have mini-me pins for the first 50 runners in the event so if you are collecting our pins then make sure you are quick to sign up!
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. The White Water Centre has changing facilities and showers available.
Parking: You entry includes your parking fee, however, it is your responsibility to ensure you enter your car registration in our tablet. Only our tablet will allow you to park all day without paying. If you fail to register with our tablet, you will receive a penalty as parking is monitored by Parking Eye.
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.
