The Darkside Strikes Back
Saturday, 04 May 2019
Join the Darkside of the force with Saturn Running's 'The Darkside Strikes Back' event and earn yourself an amazing themed medal. This is a 7 hour timed event where you can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of a 3.28 mile (5.3km) out and back, course along the beautiful River Thames as you wish within the 7 hour limit. We welcome runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap you will earn a fantastic themed medal. Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We even have a 50K option for those wishing to run this distance!
For those runners who choose to run 4 laps or more, you will also earn Saturn Running half marathon, marathon or ultra pins which can be attached to your medal ribbon.
The course is along the Thames River and a mixture of path and trail. The course is flat and fast and is a truly beautiful course that follows the river thames through picturesque scenery and nature reserve.
The aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 3.28 miles. The toilets are situated in the Wokingham Waterside Centre which is available for our runners use from 1.00pm and for the entire event. There is also a small cafe situated within centre should you wish to use it and changing facilities available after the run. There is free road parking.
Places are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out.
Minimum distance is 3.28 miles or as far as you can go in 7 hours. Runners continuing after sunset (8:30pm) will need to wear a head torch!
