A cookie themed run in King's Wood!
A continuation of our food themed runs! We have Cakeathons, Chocathons, Fudgeathons and now we have the Cookiethon! I like cookies, biscuits, shortbread and all those sorts of moorishly addictive goodies, perhaps not quite as much as cake, but not far off and have fueled many an ultra basically on cookies! Perhaps not the text book method, but what works some days!
We're using, the very pleasant King's Wood which is in the heart of Kent between Ashford and Canterbury. It'll be a moderately challenging trail run as its not a flat place but there are some lovely downhills to make up for the ups. A marathon type distance would have around 1600' of climb.
So this a run to indulge a little and we'll have a cookie themed medal and goody bag of course! Run a lap, eat some cookies, run a lap, eat some cookies , you see the theme?
There will be cookies, and we encourage participants to bring their own cookie creations. There will be a trophies for the best cookies of the day. (We're going to have three per category!)
We will have the following categories.
1) Best cookie.
2) Best cookie involving peanut butter.
3) Best cookie involving chocolate.
4) Best vegan cookie.
The RD is the sole judge and arbiter and guess what he likes?!
Run a marathon, run an ultra, run less, as long as you complete one loop you're a finisher!The event will be a six hour timed challenge event. Complete as many loops as you wish within the time limit, consume as many cookies as 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, this may be an event where you consume more calories than you burn off!
It's our aim that this event makes an impactful difference to King's Wood in a positive fashion and as such £5 from each entry fee will be donated directly to the Forestry Commission to aid them in maintaining this lovely environment.
