The race:

A new Garmin measured 5k lap around Newcastle Town Moor and Exhibition Park.  All run on tarmac and good surface, suitable for road shoes. Each lap passes the HQ with water, juice, sweets and toilet facilities.  Rather than a standard marathon, this is a six hour event where you can do as little or as much as you want, as long as you start at 09:00 and finish before 15:00.

Eight full laps plus a short extra lap is a marathon and 4 plus two loops of the boating lake is a half. Ten laps is 50K. Only full laps recorded before 15:00 will count. 

Please familiarise yourself with the map before running. The route will not be marshalled. See lap and marathon extra bit here. 

There will be medals. Hot and cold drinks and snacks available during and after the event. If you want to enter a team, any number from two upwards, you will be welcome.

Prices: Relay £35, Unaffiliated £21, affiliated £19, NEMC members £17.
