SATURN RUNNING - The Chamber Of Runs

31st Jul 2021

Further information

Celebrate an iconic book / film with our 'Chamber of Runs' event and earn yourself an amazing 100mm double sided spinner themed medal. This is the second in a series of medals you can collect, with the first being in Durham on 5th April 2020. The event is a 7 hour timed event where you can choose your distance from 5km to ultra. You can complete as many laps of a 6.6 mile (10.5km) loop course along the beautiful Northumberland coastline and country park as you wish within the 7 hour limit. We will have a 5km short lap finish point for any runners wanting to choose a shorter distance. We welcome runners of all abilities and as long as you complete at least one lap you will earn a fantastic themed medal. Alternatively, you may carry on running and complete as many laps as you can manage within the time limit! We even have a 50K option for those wishing to run this distance! rnrnThere will be a distance pin for all runners who complete either a half marathon, mega half marathon, marathon, 50km or Ultra in the 7hr time limit which can be attached to your medal ribbon. rnrnrnFor those runners who choose to run 2 laps or more, you will also earn Saturn Running half marathon, marathon or ultra pins which can be attached to your medal ribbon. rnrnrnThe course is around Druridge Bay Country Park on well maintained paths, before heading to a section on the beach. The beach itself is hard packed so it feels more like running on hard ground than soft sand. After the beach section you return to the country park along well maintained paths. The beach section is subject to tide times and weather conditions and may be excluded from the final route if deemed necessary. rnrnrnThe aid station is at the start line and therefore available every 6.6 miles. We will have a mini aid table set up at around 3.5 miles too. The toilets are situated in the Visitor's Centre which is available for our runners use for the entire event. There is also a small cafe situated within centre should you wish to use it. rnrnrnPlaces are strictly limited and event registration will close once these are sold out. rnrnrnMinimum distance is 5km or as far as you can go in 7 hours.
