What is this, then? The Under the Bridge Challenge is a six hour challenge, where you run as many 5km laps as you can within a 6 hour window. You can run as many or as few as you like, all participants get a result and a medal, and if you run further than 42.2km within the cutoff, you can count it as a marathon! In fact, we’re trying to get a short loop measured so that you can run a proper 42,195m marathon, if you so wish.

What’s in it for me? Apart from the joy of completing a marathon, you mean? You will receive each day…

A flat course, off-road but on well-surfaced paths;

a custom finisher’s medal;

a feeding station every 3 miles, approximately, with water and nibbles, cola, crisps, nuts, cake and more – including Darren’s wife’s now-famous brownie, much of which will be vegan, for all our plant-based friends;

If the budget will allow, we’d hope to be able to provide a goody bag, but as this is a pilot event this year, we’re going for a no-frills approach.
