ZigZag - Red Rum Run

Saturday, 11 March 2023 @ 09:00

We all remember the famous Red Rum Racehorse so we decided to name a race after this celebrity

Consider joining us for the RED RUM RUN

A play on the words, but we could encourage RED items of clothing too! - bit a fun but not compulsory.

Come and join us at our exclusive venue at Horseheath Racecourse, Cambridge, CB21 4QP

It's a six hour event, (if you start at 9am, and 4hour event if you start at 11am) run as far as you can during the time. As long as you are leaving the Base Camp by 5:59:59. This event will be run on an out and back course.

You can run as much or little as you want to, you can rest between laps if you like.

You may be completing your first official 5k,10k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or even ultra-Marathon, or it may be your 100th or 1000th, the location is pretty self-contained, making this an intimate event with us having exclusive use of the main area. We have plenty of open space at the venue to ensure we can all stay socially distanced and space ourselves adequately,

This race is also ideal for those who want to try and achieve a Marathon distance and for those who also want the option to push a little further, possibly an ultra but without the complications of trail ultras, with next to no navigation, no kit required, an aid station every lap and straightforward logistics.

Parking is also included and secure on site, we will have a parking attendant showing you to park, they will also check your name, give you your race bib numbers and let you know to come to the Race HQ/Base Camp

The Race HQ/Base Camp is located at the start and Lap point we will have our water/aid station

You will be able to leave your bags and extra kit you want to bring in your car as it will be close to the start/Lap point of the race.

Upon entry you will receive an email confirmation from Event entry and Zig Zag Running, This confirmation will contain the race briefing information needed for the event.

We have designed a Bespoke medal for the event, which you will receive at the end of the race. Or if you choose the lucky dip option, you will choose from a selection of previous medals.

We will have virtual spaces available for the day for anyone who wants the run on the day for the medal but cannot get to the venue on the day. These are only available on our website

The terrain has long slopes rather than hills, it is a challenging course. It is mainly pathway with a small undulated section, our suggestion is to wear road trainers, but depending on the weather before the event you may want to bring trails if you have them but not essential.

Important note: Please do not bring any glass to the venue, this is strictly prohibited

With immediate effect our transfers policy will be as follows;

  • Participants are able to transfer their places to another event as long as there is more than 7 days before the event
  • Participants are able to transfer their places to other participants up to 48 hours before the event (Zig Zag Running will obviously need to know the details of the changes and monies to be sorted out between the 2 participants)
  • If you wish to transfer your place and its less than 7 days then you can pay a £10 transfer fee to another event. However, this can only be done upto 48 hours before the event.
  • If you cannot make the event and its less than 7 days, you can opt to run the event virtually and get 15% off of a future event.

We hope this allows our events to be more accessible in the event of change of circumstance.
