Do you have what it takes to be The Last One Running for RSPCA North Wilts?!

Lydiard

 

Are you up for a different sort of running challenge? Test your pacing, stamina and finally speed with this knockout style race that suits all levels of runners from leisurely weekend joggers to marathon veterans! 

How it works:

Runners will have 25 minutes to complete the 1st 2 mile loop, finishing in the holding area. All runners back within 25mins will continue, the next loop will start at 11:55 and must be completed in 24 mins. Any runner not finished inside the time limit will be disqualified.

The time will be reduced by one minute for every loop until there is only one runner at the start line, this runner will be the last one running!

This is an event that suits all level of runners from 5k park runners all the way to Marathon and Ultra runners. Pacing is everything!
