Decades Dash 60's
Jubilee River Way
Thursday 12th November 2020
A 6 hour timed challenge, where you can run for as long as you want (up to 6 hours) and complete as many or as few 5.25 mile out and back laps as you choose on the day. 5 laps for a marathon, 6+ for an ultra or 1 or more to be a finisher and get a medal and a choose your own goody bag treats. There will also be a half marathon option by completing a shorter 3rd lap.
This is a fantastic venue, the route is flat and has a brilliant path to run on. On leaving the Riverside Centre the quiet path is wide enough to social distance as it follows the River Jubilee and you are soon surrounded by countryside as you head towards Dorney wetlands.
The race will have flexible starts from 8:30 am and you will be set off individually as soon as you are ready. You must have started your final lap within 6 hours of starting and at 3pm latest, you will then be able to complete that lap even if your finish time is a little over the 6 hours.
This is the 1st of the 6 Decade Dash medal events with the 70's, 80's 90's 00's and 10's taking place over the coming months.
