Horseheath Horse Trials, Horseheath Racecourse, Cambridge, United Kingdom
T'was the run before Christmas
In our new exclusive Venue at Horseheath Racecourse, Great Thurlow, Cambridge, CB21 4QP
This is limited to 40 People. We have 10 Virtual spaces available for each day for anyone who wants the run on the day for the medal but cannot get to the venue on the day.
It's a six hour event, run as far as you can during the six hours and a little bit more if you're lucky, as long as you are leaving the Base Camp by 5:59:59 you get to run another lap, we have designed a 5.3k route which encompasses the grounds of Horseheath racecourse, 90% of the route is within the grounds and a small portion is on a rarely used public footpath.
You can run as much or little as you want to, you can rest between laps if you like and take in the music at the aid station, all whilst socially distancing of course.
You may be completing your first official 5k,10k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or even ultra-Marathon, or it may be your 100th or 1000th, the location is pretty self-contained, making this an intimate event with us having exclusive use of the area. We have plenty of open space at the venue to ensure we can all stay socially distanced and space ourselves adequately,
It's also ideal for those who want to try and achieve a Marathon distance and for those who also want the option to push a little further, possibly an ultra but without the complications of trail ultras, with next to no navigation, no kit required, an aid station every lap and straightforward logistics.
Parking is also included and secure on site, we will have a parking attendant showing you where to park. He will also check your name and let you know when to come to the Race HQ/Base Camp
This will be located at the start and Lap point where we will have our water/aid station, you will be able to pick up your race number and the Race director will call you in your coral of 5 or 6 people for the race briefing and to the start of the race.
You will be able to leave your bags and extra kit you want to bring in your car as it will be close to the start/Lap point of the race. If you are being dropped off we can find somewhere safe for it to be during the race.
Upon entry you will receive an email explaining the times and set up, if you are hoping to run with someone or possibly in a group, once you have entered, I suggest entering the event at the same time or please send me an email and I will do my best to organise it.
We have designed a large Bespoke medal for the event, which you will receive at the end of the race.
The terrain will have slopes rather than hills, there is a small public footpath which is rarely used yet whilst its undulated, its primarily flat. Mainly pathway with a small undulated section, our suggestion is to wear road trainers.
