Flitch Way 12 hour race

January 23rd 2022

This is a 12 hour timed event that will run 10k out and back sections along the Flitch Way in Essex.

 

It is primarily aimed at a timed qualifier for those who need one for Spartathlon or similar races later in the year BUT anyone can come and run it as long as you are happy with the basic format and no frills status.

 

Please note the rules for Spartathlon Qualifiers have changed and a 100km in under 10 hours is no longer valid for entry to 2021 and onwards, You now require 120km in 12 hours as the shortest distance qualifier.

 

This is the reason this event has changed to a 12 hour timed event.

 

Cutoff is 12hours - Only complete laps within that time count.

 

Start time 7am. Cut off 7pm - times are set to give most light available.

 

Start address - Rayne Train Station, Station Road, Rayne, Essex CM776AB

 

Parking opposite the station on New road. (Do not park on Station Road)

 

Facilities: None apart from a toilet at the start - bring a bag with your spare kit and food in for your use.

 

Timing: Somene will log you on each out and back. Someone will police the turnaround point at various times during the day.

 

Checkpoint: a table and shelter at the start end with water and maybe a few snacks etc - but bring your own food and drinks as support is minimal. There will be a shelter and tables for you to place your food and supplies.

 

No prizes or Medals or T-shirt, Its all about the time and to provide a medal or t-shirt for a small number of runners would be expensive and more than double the cost.

 

Terrain: very flat and fast gravel paths out and back - some small muddy bits if wet but a very fast run.

 

Official results will give splits every 10k up to 12 hours and only completed loops count.

 

Cost £25  £27 if not affiliated to UKA
