An Autumn Challenges at Ranscombe!
In fact the course is so pretty we thought we'd give you the opportunity to savour it for even longer – this event has a time limit of eight hours to run as many of the 4.4 mile loop as you wish! It'll be late September so hopefully it will be dry and the colours beginning to turn!
It's a challenging trail run on the North Downs (in fact a part of the route is on the North Downs Way) on a mixture of single track, wide double track through fields and woodland. There are some lovely views and whilst there are some hills there are also some very runnable downhills also!
The Four Seasons of Ranscombe Medal Series!
We'll have a well stocked aid station, a unique custom made medal each day and a goody bag that actually contains goodies will make the undulations and any mud more than worth it. (But it is on chalk downlands so does drain pretty well if it has rained!)
Having completed lots of marathons we believe we know what it takes to put on an enjoyable marathon for the fit, the dedicated and the hardcore long distance runners. And for those, like ourselves, who fit none of those categories, we'll do our best to get you round! We put on marathons run exactly the way we wish they were all run - low key, friendly and with most of the entry fee being spent on the runners.
For this race we're the guests of the Ranscombe Farm Reserve, who exist to maintain this corner of England as a haven for wild flowers to flourish in. They are the flagship reserve for the charity Plantlife International , speaking up for wild plants!
It's our aim that this event makes an impactful difference to the Trust in a positive fashion and as such £5 from each entry fee will be donated directly to the Trust to aid them in maintaining this lovely environment.
Please explore the race and consider joining us!
