Ricky Races 3
Thursday 13th February 2020
We are delighted to be back at Rickmansworth Aquadrome for 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 for a half, 8 laps for a marathon, 9+ for an ultra or 1 or more to be a finisher and get a medal and a pick your own goody bag of treats.
The scenic flat route is mainly on tarmacked paths and takes you alongside the Grand Union Canal, River Colne and around the three lakes of this beautiful nature reserve.
The race will start at 09.00 with a cut off at 15:00 (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)
