Milton Keynes Sweatshop is looking to enter a team of 8 in the Thunder Run July 2016. Obviously this is a long time away but entries always sell out within hours opening.
Please use this event to indicate an interest in joining the SRC MK team. Date & Price may change but will be correct when we ask you to confirm shortly before entries open in August.
What is TR24?
adidas Thunder Run is a 24 hour off-road relay race against the clock. Whether you run solo, pairs or teams of 5 or 8 it'll test your tactics, endurance, speed and team work. It's an exhilarating, rewarding and tiring race with a great atmosphere. You'll find TR24 physically challenging and mentally tough but an experience not to be missed.
What to expect:
You can set up camp either the night before or the morning of the race to start soaking up the atmosphere. Once you're geared up, your first runner will assemble at the start line at 12pm and when the claxon goes, together you won't finish for 24 hours.
One team member must be on the course at all times during the 24hrs. Runners must complete one full 10km lap before changing over with a team mate but may run 2, 3 or more laps at a time before changeover. The team with the most laps completed when the clock stops after 24hrs will win.
The Cost (based on 2015):
Team of 8 - £320 (£40 per runner)
