Returning for 2017 after a very hot, wet, muddy and enjoyable 2016 Half Marathon we now offer a complete weekend of XC events. New for 2017 we have the addition of a XC 10km and the opportunity to multisport with SwimRun Fritton Lake.
Both the XC 10km and the XC HM will start at Fritton Lake Outdoor Centre with the Half Marathon comprising two laps, and the 10km one lap of an off road course. With a route that takes in a complete circuit of the beautiful Fritton Lake, on woodland trails not normally open to the public, this is XC at it’s best. Enjoy stunning views, glimpses of the lake throughout the woodland and feel at one with nature as you challenge yourself in this event. With varied terrain of 90% undulating woodland and meadowland and a short section on tarmac drive, there is always the possibility of an extremely wet and muddy route due to the close proximity of Fritton Lake.
Finishers medals, prizes to age group winners and top 3 males and females overall. We have teamed up with a number of local businesses to bring you discounts on everything from running gear to bike servicing and sports therapy. Click here for details.
We are always on the look out for enthusiastic volunteers to help out at our events. With roles as varied as handing out medals to providing swim support at our open water events we can find a job to suit you. Click here to find out more.
