Reindeer Run 2020



If you fancy joining Rudolph and his friends just before Christmas to bank some pre-festive mileage, why not join us at the anniversary of our sold out Reindeer run, a Marathon, 6hr & nightime 3hr challenge event at Layer Marney Tower. 


The course will be 5km loop on a mixture of trail and road surfaces, and the times events will give you the opportunity to run as many or as few laps as you wish, within the time limit of 6 or 3 hours. The loops will be 5.3km in distance and so you will need to do 4 for a half marathon, 8 laps to cover full marathon distance, and then if you choose to continue, the clock will be your only limiting factor! The 3hr event will commence at 3:30pm and so you will need a headtorch or similar as it will be dark pretty soon after the start! 


With an aid station at the end of every lap, you will have the ability to fuel yourself without having to carry everything you might need. You may leave a bag with your specific requirements at the aid station, for you to raid as you see fit! Alternatively there will be flapjacks, fruit and nuts, and also water and squash, should you feel like a change!

This event will be cupless as far as possible and we can refil safely, however as part of our COVID procedures we will have drinks in cups for you if you would rather do that. 

An opportunity to run on a scenic lapped course, without the need to carry your usual ‘clobber’ and with a sought after, unique, bespoke medal, this promises to be a fantastic event for runners of all abilities. UKA Affliated Member & Race Permit issued by TRA and a 100 Club qualifiying event.
