Permit number 20/054

A six hour event consisting of 6.55 mile loops. This is not a competitive race and the objective is to complete as many laps as you wish within the 6 hour time limit. Those who wish to cover the classic 26.2 mile marathon distance will need to complete 4 laps, while those wishing to complete the 13.1 mile half marathon distance will need to run 2 laps.

Please note that this is no longer a free event to NEMC members. 

NEMC is becoming increasingly sustainable by no longer using disposable cups at our non-competitive events. You are asked to bring your own cup or bottle, which we will fill for you. If you choose not to bring your own, we can sell you one for £2 and give that money to WaterAid.
