Do I need to complete the loops in a certain time?

  • Runners of all speeds are welcome at this event - we are likely to have two paced groups for most loops. If you expect to take significantly longer than an hour, then let us know at the start and we can also make sure you have a map of the route. If you would like to join a series of consecutive runs, then you will need to be at start/finish before the next run sets off.

Will food and drink be available?

  • Yes! in 2017 we partnered with a range of health brands to bring you snacks and goodies throughout the day:

  • Tea and coffee will also be available and there are plenty of places nearby that serve hot food.

Can I come to the afterparty?

  • Yes, all runners are invited to join the afterparty in the evening for free!

  • We will be celebrating with awesome music and drinks - please come from 10pm onwards. Many runners will run the final loop and then return for the party at midnight.

  • If you would like to join the afterparty but are not participating in the event then you will be able to get a separate ticket (on sale soon).
