A 6 Km Mixed terrain (Roads, Tracks and trails) trail run/walk with feed stations every few Kilometres* (ish), stocked with Pies! So run, walk or crawl your way around this Pie themed event.
The Athlons, all the fun of a run - walk- crawl with the added bonus of some thing special.Most races you will ever do under 10k-ish, will have no feed, water or aid stations on the route, usually if you are lucky water will all be waiting for you at the finish line & possibly a snack!The athlons all have a water/feed station every 2 miles or less, stocked with plenty of water and nibbles etc, and then pie stations fairly evenly distributed around the course!Photos, all the athlons have professional photographers who's photos of you on race day, will be available free to download within a few hours of your finish, these will not be the usual finish line photos! There are extra Pies and Peas from the Edge Cafe £5.00 (pre order during registration)
Miles of sunny trails!! All the athlons are easy trail run/walks for beginners right through to seasoned athletes, the concept is simple; Cross the start line, follow the well marked off road routes to the first feed station, have a snack then away you go again following the route to the next station, then onto the finish.
