Ricky Races 
Thursday 2nd December 2021

 

A 6 hour timed challenge, where you can run for as long as you want (up to 6 hours) and complete as many 3.28 laps as you choose on the day. 4 laps makes a half, 8 laps a marathon, 9+ for an ultra (also a 50k option by adding a short lap) or 1 or more to be a finisher and get a medal and choose your goody bag of treats.

The scenic flat route is on tarmacked paths that take you alongside the River Colne and around the three lakes of this beautiful nature reserve.

The race will start at 08.30 with a cut off at 14:30 (you cannot start a lap after this time but you can complete a lap which you have started even if your finish time is a little over 6 hours) You may also start later if you wish to run for less than 6 hours but your last lap must be started by 14:30.
