Race Description

Starting in Twickenham Stadium and after viewing the England changing rooms (without the England rugby team in them), the race kicks off with a short team lap of the pitch. The first runner sets off on leg one, as the other racers head off to their transport to drive to checkpoint 1. This continues throughout the night.
There is real pressure on all the runners, with teams swapping positions and chasing target times throughout the hours of darkness and into the Saturday daytime. After completing two individual legs each and a middle team leg later (some 16 miles each) the team stands outside of the Millennium stadium in Cardiff waiting their final runner on Saturday evening.
Finally united, the team then runs the last lap together into the stadium, doing a lap of honour around the inside of the stadium on the big screens. There will be huge crowds there cheering you on, live music to keep your legs moving.
Upon finishing, book your slot in the changing rooms to grab a quick shower, get some physio treatment and get ready for the party. Food and drink ensue until the evening climaxes with a huge fire show. Spectator tickets are on sale for those friends and family who want to come celebrate.
The challenge is 24 hours (a lot do it in 30 hours), it’s exhausting, tough and very challenging. The sense of accomplishment is extreme though! Bring on your friends and get ready to face a true challenge- think you know tough?
