Solo - £20 (+ £2 unaffiliated)
The Fractured Marathon is a unique and exciting event for teams or solo runners of all abilities. The innovative format was a smash hit with participants at the inaugural event in 2019. It created a great atmosphere and was as much a Friday night running party as a race!
Based in the spectacular grounds of Calke Abbey, the event will run for 5 hours from 5pm until 10pm; going from sunlight to starlight.
There will be 10 timed laps around a scenic 2.6-mile course, which will start every half hour on the half hour.
Teams, or solo runners, can take part in as many or as few of the 10 laps as they like. For runners, solo and team, to be eligible to run the next lap though, they must be back before it starts. Otherwise they will have to wait for the next start time to re-join the game. So, to remain in with chance of completing a full marathon, each loop must be completed within half an hour.
Teams can be entered in the following categories:
There will be prizes for the fastest accumulative marathons for teams in each category and solo runners.
Plus, there are opportunities for individuals to achieve distance personal bests in a fun way (e.g. run your first half marathon, full marathon or other distance), or for team / club-mates to have a competition amongst themselves.
NOTE: In the Team category, the deadline for declaring who all the team members are is midnight on 27th October 2021. This must be done by the person who purchased the entry inserting the details of each runner via SiEntries. Team entries can, however, be purchased before that even if all team members aren't know.
As part of our environmental policy, t-shirts may be purchased as an optional extra - so they're not made for those that don't need one. Also, you do have the option of joining the National Forest 'Plant a Tree' scheme as an alternative or in addtion to a t-shirt.
