SATURN - Save The Rhino Run 2024

Sunday, 17 March 2024 @ 09:30

Join us for our special Save The Rhino Run with Chris "Rhino Boy" Green as well as our very own Chuckle Twin aka George "Floats Like A Rhino" McDonough. 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.

This year, George will also be taking part in this event as he will also be running London Marathon as a Rhino!

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!

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 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 which starts from the official event start time. It is 3 laps for a half marathon, 6 for a marathon and 7 or over for an ultra, we also have a 50km distance available.

Course: The course along the River Wear and has views of the Cathedral and Castle. It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required. The course is a mixture with approximately 60% of it on a well-made path / tarmac. Road shoes can be used all year round but if you prefer the extra grip on the trail sections then trail shoes can be worn.

The regular course is subject to some change near the time of the event depending on our health and safety review of the course and council / land owner final approval.

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

Goody Bag: Absolutely! You earned the calories after all, so all our finishers get a goody bag. As well as our standard goody bag, with a selection of various goodies to choose from, we also have a fabulous vegan goody bag for our vegan runners.

Distance Pins: We have distance pins available for anyone who runs a half-marathon distance or more. Pins available to collect are our Half-Marathon, Mega-Half, Marathon, 50km and Ultra pins. You will receive one pin on the ribbon of your medal to reflect your achievement.

Aid Table: We have a fantastic aid table and drinks table at the start / finish of each lap. There is a great selection of savoury, sweet, fruit, cheese and vegan items at the aid table.

Special Event: If our event is a special event for you, for instance your 50th, 99th, 100th, 200th, 250th etc., half or full marathon then please let us know. You will receive a special running number with your name on it and the date of the event. Also, if it is your birthday run then again please let us know as we have a fabulous special birthday number for you too.

Toilets & Changing Facilities: There are toilets and changing / shower facilities available at the race HQ.

Final Instructions / Number pick up: Final race day instructions will be sent out via email 4-5 days prior to the event with full race day information. Number pick up is on the day at race registration before the start of the event.

Parking: Parking is in nearby streets for free or local council car parks within the City.

Other Info: There will be somewhere to leave a bag at the start / finish area. However, this is not a secure bag and the items cannot be watched at all times so please don't leave anything valuable.

Headphones are allowed.

Our running events are help on public footpaths so we would be grateful if all runners were considerate of other path users.
