What sets this running event apart?
Audax Spirit: Inspired by the legendary Audax rules from the world of cycling, our running event emphasizes self-sufficiency, camaraderie, and the thrill of going the distance. We encourage participants to embrace the Audax mindset and embark on an unforgettable adventure that pushes their limits. You’ll get your “Brevet card” stamped at the start and at all event controls along the way, this is your proof of passage.
This event is not about racing against others but challenging yourself to achieve personal milestones. It's a celebration of the joy of running, shared experiences, and the pursuit of personal achievement. We will still recognise those who decide to race, but you’ll all get your card stamped and receive your Wildflower medal no matter how fast you complete the challenge.
You can access our car sharing group on Facebook, where you can arrange car sharing opportunities with other race day participants. Great for the environment and great for your pocket.... and you could win free race places in our car share raffle! Car Share group
Scenic Route: Our carefully planned route takes you from the vibrant quayside, through the industrial areas along the river to the beautiful country parks and riverside meadows. Experience the beauty of nature as you run along scenic trails, winding roads, and hidden gems that showcase the best our region has to offer.
Time Limit: Unlike traditional races, our event features a generous time limit of 10 hrs, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the journey. Take the time to appreciate the surroundings, connect with fellow participants, and savour the moments along the way.
Provisions: Just like in Audax cycling, there are numerous cafes along the route where you can replenish supplies and we will provide snacks and water at Wylam (10 and 22 miles). There will also be a free halfway buffet at Stocksfield Cricket Club at around mile 16. Please do supplement this by carrying your own hydration, nutrition, and any necessary equipment."
Supportive Community: Join a community of like-minded individuals who share your passion for endurance sports. Encourage and be encouraged as you cross paths with fellow participants, sharing stories, tips, and the sense of accomplishment that comes from pushing your limits.
Get ready to embrace the Audax spirit, lace up your running shoes, and embark on a remarkable journey of self-discovery and adventure. Join us as we bring the spirit of Audax to the world of running!
