Dark Track 6 Hour Challenge

Saturday 27 January 2024
Start time : 12:00

For our Dark Track event we are returning to the 400 metre track at The University of York Athletics Sports Centre.  This is a 6 hour, chip timed event so you can turn up and run 1 lap and earn a medal and goody bag.  Or you can run for the full 6 hours and see how many laps you can complete or anything in between.    

It's your challenge, your race, you decide the distance!

For extra fun/challenge, the floodlights at the track will not be switched on, so anyone running after 4.30 (ish) will be running in the dark - headtorches will definitely be needed!

No need to advise us in advance how many laps you wish to do, just turn up and run! There is absolutely, no need to run for the full 6 hours, unless you really wish to do so! 

Anyone wishing to run in the dark, but not wanting to run for the full 6 hours can start their run at any time before 3.30.   

All runners, no matter how fast or how far they have run, will receive the same bespoke medal and a goody bag.    

Homemade cakes will be available for all runners inside the clubhouse.    

Please note that all our events are now cupless. Please bring you own labelled bottle or cup. These can be accessed each lap and can be filled and refilled with water and squash before, during and after the event.  We will also have coke, sweets and snacks on the feed station to help keep you fuelled.   

Final event information will be e-mailed out to everyone the week before the event.

Race registration and bib/chip collection will be on race day before the event.

Affiliated £24.00
