Wimpole 24 is a new ultra event held at Wimpole National Trust Estate on the edge of Cambridge. It’s made up of two different events, which both complete the same 4.17 mile looped course around the heart of the parkland, on a mix of trail and grassland. Each lap has an ascent of approx. 300 ft.

The Challenge
Our Challenge event is open to single sex or mixed teams of 2, 4 or 6. It will start at 12 noon on Sat 14th September and teams aim to complete as many laps as possible around the beautiful Wimpole Estate in 24 hours.  Each lap will be 4.17 miles long to enable one per hour to equal 100 miles. Each team member must run one lap, but laps can be completed as quickly or slowly as desired.

The Countdown
Our Countdown event is a unique race for solo entries only. They will complete the same 4.17 mile loop but will need to complete a lap every hour with the maximum time decreasing by 1 minute per lap with some enforced rest increasing each lap. Lap 1 starts at 12:01 and must be completed in 59 minutes. Lap 2 starts at 13:02 and must be completed in 58 minutes. The 24th lap (100 miles) will start at 11:24 on Sunday and must be completed in 36 minutes to qualify for the final 25th lap, in which the fastest person home will win.

Two nights camping for competitors are included in the entry fee with all finishers getting medals, t-shirts and photography. Additional camping for family members is available but limited in number and at a small cost. Runners will be expected to provide their own nutrition during the race.
