The Sunrise to Sunset Challenge
Run the The Sunrise to Sunset Challenge.
Run off those Christmas calories by taking part in the Sunrise to Sunset challenge. This lap race takes place typically in late December and at The Shrewsbury Cycle Track in Sundorne, Shropshire. The idea behind this race is for participants to cover as much distance as possible between sunrise and sunset. However, you do not have to run for the whole time the sun is up, you can do a 10K, half-marathon, marathon or an ultra. It's up to you.
The course is a 1K purpose-built cycle track and is considered a fast-paced course, so ideal for those looking to improve their PBs. Every time you complete a lap, your lap card will be stamped and you can compete for the fastest lap time. This event is popular with experienced runners and those who are looking to break into ultra-running races. The Sunrise to Sunset challenge is a great event to start with if you are thinking about taking part in an ultra-running event. Whatever distance you choose, there will be plenty of food and drink available as well as music and entertainment.
