I am pleased to announce that, yet again, the wonderful Keith Godden (UltraMarathonRunningStore) is providing some prizes for the race. Thanks Keith.
Thanks to our latest sponsor ERDINGER.
Anyone who has competed in Germany will know that the races over there frequently use this refreshing drink.
Erdinger Alkoholfrei is a uniquely refreshing low-alcohol isotonic recovery drink.
Notably, this non alcoholic Bavarian brew provides the body with essential vitamins, such as folic acid and vitamin B12, which help reduce fatigue and support the immune system. (0.4% ABV).
It will be available for the 24 hour runners at our race. If successful I will ensure a bigger supply for 2019!
The 6 hour race is now full. If you want to go on the waiting list then you need to submit an entry but you will not be charged. You will automatically be added to the waiting list.
I am pleased to announce that the 12 hour race is now full with 2 names already on the waiting list.
Sadly James Toombs has had to withdraw from the race, we hope he can make it for 2019!
There are still plenty of places available for the race and, to date, no ladies have entered. Come on girls there are three lovely prizes up for grabs!
There are only 2 more places left for the 12 hours but a waiting list will be in operation.
We welcome Norbert Mihalik to the race. Norbert won the Tooting Bec 24 hour race in September with a fine 259.40 km (161.18 miles). A good field so far!
Sadly Elspeth Jenkins has withdrawn from the race but has been replaced by Mike Julien who was first on the waiting list.
There are now 12 names on the waiting list so I have decided to not accept any more applications.
I am pleased to announce that Henry Smith, the local M.P. for Crawley has agreed to present the prizes for the 24 hour race.
Don’t leave it too late to enter this famous race.
There is now a waiting list for the 24 hours, you can enter online but do not need to pay unless a place becomes available.
Plenty of places left for the 6 and 12 hour races. The 6 hours starts at midday with the 24 hour folk but the 12 hours is a night run starting at 8.00 pm. Great preparation for GUCR or any of the 100 mile events where you have a night session.
For anyone that is counting ‘Marathons’ for the purposes of the 100 Marathon Club, I ask that you run 27 miles (this is an ultra distance event after all) and the Club will accept this as an ultra result.
i look forward to receiving many more entries for the 6 and 12 hour races to enable us to raise a lot of money for our orphans and needy children in Uganda.
Following the success of this years event ( Freedom Leisure British Ultrafest) it has been decided that the event will take place again but under the Charity name.
Same venue but on the 7th/8th of April 2018. 6, 12 and 24 hours.
Enter via the link to Entry Central.com.
Members of the Road Runners Club will get a £5.00 discount, just put your membership number in the appropriate box.
Seven runners already entered the 24 hours since Tuesday!
Sorry I can’t accept any more entries but can put you on a waiting list. I am really short of lap recorders so if you could spare a few hours or know someone who can help please let me know. Pam.
