We are pleased to announce that our 2023 Dawn To Dusk (D2D) races will be on Sunday 10 December at the usual location (car park of Teresa Gavin House, Southend Rd, Woodford, Woodford Green IG8 8FA) and still have the Team Relay Ultra which is a fixed distance of 50km (25 laps). Our friendly event is a friendly race because we expect everyone to observe a be nice strict etiquette and be subject to our Zero Tolerance Policy..

We will hold our (good value for money) prices for this year and 2024 at the still completive prices of £39 for the longer distances and £19 for the 10km. The Team Relay Ultra (for up to FIVE runners - only team captain should enter) will be £95 in keeping with the fee of the individual 10km.

This race will be under the relevant COVID restrictions applicable at the time including your honesty in declaring that you are not affected at the time of applying - if you do have to pull out for any reason, in accordance with our No Refund or Transfers Policy we will offer you a deferred place at our next similar event such as the Fauja Singh Birthday Challenge (end of March 2024) or the Summer Samosa Ultra in June 2024 only.

We hope to welcome back as many of our loyal regulars as possible, while also encouraging first timers to give us a try. To clear all previous deferrals the number of entries are limited to 280 for the D2D races and 95 for the 10km. Entries close on midnight Saturday 4 November 2023. (375 in total for both races). There will be a limit of 20 Team entries to ensure that the safe limit of runners on the course is maintained.
