The Unusual Suspects...

We wanted to create a real fun event, real fun medal, to appeal to all of those who don't quite fit in to the usual running categories. The Unusual Suspects. The plodders, the joggers and the mid pack waddlers. The disaffected, the disappointed and the disjointed, even the double jointed. The under weight, the over weight and the couldn't care less weight. Those who've never followed training plans, diet plans or have no plans. Those who just want to show up, run around a bit and have a good time. Those who would rather eat cake, chocolate and cookies than gels, electrolytes and bananas. This isn't going to be a terribly serious running event. Though a little bit of running at least will be involved!

Fancy dress is most certainly encouraged, or the daftest, brightest, worst running shirt you own, we'll have a prize or two for the best, or the worst, depending on your point of view.

The event will be a six hour timed challenge event based out of the Cyclopark Complex at Gravesend (although the routes won't actually be in the Cyclopark area we're just using their facilities and parking) and the route will be a mixture of trail, bike paths and tarmac and not flat either, but not too hilly either before you panic!

Complete as many loops as you wish within the time limit, consume as many goodies as you wish within the time limit. Run a marathon, run an ultra, run less, as long as you complete one loop you're a finisher! We do warn you though,as with many of our events, you may consume more calories than you burn off, but just in case you don't the goody bags will contain a decent amount of chocolate!

It's our aim that this event makes an impactful difference to the Cyclopark charity in a positive fashion and as such £5 from each entry fee will be donated directly to the Cyclopark Trust to aid them in maintaining this environment and facility.

Please explore the race and consider joining us!

This event forms part of a five event series.
