The Fractured Marathon is an exciting new event for teams or solo runners of all abilities. The format promises to create a great atmosphere and, we hope, become as much a Friday night running party as a race!
Based at the new Calke Explore Centre, and using the grounds of the spectacular Calke Abbey, the event will run for 5 hours from 7pm until midnight; going from sunlight to starlight.
There will be 10 timed laps around a scenic 2.6-mile course, which will start every half hour on the half hour.
Teams, or solo runners, can take part in as many or as few of the 10 laps as they like. For runners, solo and team, to be eligible to run the next lap they must be back before it starts. Otherwise they will have to wait for the next start time to re-join the game. So, to remain in with chance of completing a full marathon, each loop must be completed within half an hour.
Team entries are for a maximum of 5 runners in total - only the Team Captain's name is required at entry. There is a £2 added extra per unaffiliated runner.
Teams can be entered in the following categories:
* Mixed (at least 50% of loops must be run by a female runner)
There will be prizes for the fastest accumulative marathons and half marathons, best performing teams and solo runners based on positions in each race, and best performing club.
Plus, there are opportunities for individuals to achieve distance personal bests in a fun way (e.g. run your first half marathon, full marathon or other distance), or for team / club-mates to have a competition amongst themselves.
Please note the minimum age is 18 for solo runners. For teams: the team captains must be 18 but runners aged 16-17 may be teams members.
