The Valhalla Winter Run

Saturday 14 December 2024
Start time : 10:00

We are back again for some winter fun using our University Challenge route. 6 hour lapped event taking place through the grounds of York University. It is an out and back route of 2 miles   The route incorporates an ascent that in York terms is challenging, but in reality is just a pimple.

It is your challenge. You decide the distance. You can run 1 lap, finish and collect your medal. You can run 6 laps and then to the cone of doom to complete a tough half marathon, 13 laps and then to the cone of doom for a tough marathon or just keep on going for the full 6 hours!

All runners receive a bespoke medal (new medal for 2023) and a goody bag. There will be homemade cake for all.  There will be mulled wine and festive goodies for all runners.

There is free parking at York University. Toilet facilities are available at York Sports Centre.

This is a cupless event so all runners are requested to bring their own labelled bottle/cup. This can be placed on the table at the start/finish area and accessed each lap. We will have water and squash available and can fill bottles before, during or after the event.

Final race instructions will be e-mailed out the week before the event and bib pick up will be on the morning of the event.

Are you up to the challenge?
