Remembrance Day 2022

Join us on the 13th November 2022 for our truly memorable Remembrance Day special event with a unique atmosphere. Choose from a trail marathon or 6hr timed event.

We will have an 11am silence marked within the race itself and it would be great to have the entire field taking a slight breather to remember those military personnel who have given their lives over the years in service to our great country. The Last Post will be played live prior to the event start, as we have done in previous years.
