The event is a 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, from Saturn Running, 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 is around the beautiful Dare Valley Country Park on well maintained paths. There are lovely views of the surrounding country side making this an interesting course to run. We are currently finalising the route which we are planning on being 4.37 miles.

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. The centre also has a great cafe.

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: There is a free car park at the venue for cars, vans and motorhomes.
