Chip timed so you can see how you did each lap later as well as on the big electronic board as you pass the Start/Finish
Due to COVID we were unable to keep the race on our traditional nearest convenient Sunday to the shortest day of the year but have tried to avoid clashes with other local races. The 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, we will offer you a deferred place at our next D2D or similar event such as the Fauja Singh Birthday Challenge on 11 April.
We hope to welcome back as many of our loyal regulars as possible, while also encouraging first timers to give us a try.
Those of you who have taken part in this (D2D) event will already know but for the first timers here is a summary:
There is also an opportunity for those starting out to run a 10 Km race starting at 11am.
Rewards include a unique medal, event T-shirt, goody bag and COVID permitting a chance to meet and have a selfie with the world's oldest marathon runner - Fauja Singh BEM
There is a feeding station and loos at the Start/Finish of each lap serving usual drinks, chocs, fruit, tea/coffee and onion bhaji!
The event has all the usual support of paramedics, marshals and is fully insured.
The course is certified for distance and the Marathon/Ultra will count towards your 100 Marathon Club total.
There is also free parking along the route but we ask if you can park at least 100m away from the start/finish which is close to GPS reference IG4 5PS
