The 2019 Grease Lightning Run will be held on Friday 22nd February with a whole new medal.
Fancy dress is very much the order of the day, so it's time to get your 50's gear out and run like lightning.
This is a 6 hour timed event where you choose - from 5km to ultra marathon, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.3km, 3.28 mile, out and back, course along the beautiful river Thames. We welcome all abilities of runner - complete one lap and you're both a finisher and a winner in our eyes, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 6 hour time limit and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers' medal.
Not sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don't even need to decide in advance - simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if it feels right.
This is a picturesque out-and-back, lapped course along the River Thames towpath, with no elevation gain / loss making it a flat and fast route.
Places will be strictly limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.
Accurately Measured & UKA Certified Route - Certificate No: 18/340
