York University Challenge 2024

Saturday, 20 July 2024 @ 10:00

Back for its 4th outing York University Challenge is a 6 hour lapped event taking place through the grounds of York University. It is an out and back route of 2.2 miles The route incorporates a slight ascent that in York terms is challenging, but in reality is just a pimple.

It is your challenge. You decide the distance. You can run 1 lap, finish and collect your medal. You can run 6 laps to complete a half marathon, 13 laps for a marathon or just keep on going for the full 6 hours!

All runners receive a fabulous bookmark style bespoke medal this year featuring Goodricke College and their fabulous dragon. Runners will also receive a goody bag. There will be homemade cake for all.

There is free parking at York University. Toilet facilities are available at York Sports Centre.

This is a cupless event so all runners are requested to bring their own labelled bottle/cup. This can be placed on the table at the start/finish area and accessed each lap. We will have water and squash available and can fill bottles before, during or after the event.

Final race information will be e-mailed the week before the event and race numbers are collected from Race Registration on the morning of the event.
