The 2018 Grease Lightning Run will be held on Friday 16th February.
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.
The overall course has no elevation gain / loss making this a flat and fast route.
This event is fully sanctioned by the 100 Marathon Club.
Places will be strictly limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.
