Flitch Way 12 hour race

January 8th 2023

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Please note the rules for Spartathlon Qualifiers have changed and a 100km in under 10 hours is no longer valid for entry from the 2021 races, You now require 120km in 12 hours as the shortest distance qualifier.


This is the reason this event is now 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 Vilage Hall, 3 Gore Rd, Rayne, Braintree CM77 6TX


Parking is at the Village Hall. 


Please dont arrive before 6am as it's a residential area.


Facilities: Toilets in the village hall and a kitchen for hot water.


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 just outside the building 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 outside as well so you can turn around quickly.


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.
