Big Bear Challenge

How far is the race?
You decide! The 3.3-mile out and back loop at Ryton Pools Country Park means your race can be just over 5k or, given the relatively flat nature of the course, potentially 49.5 miles! You decide how many laps you are going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance you'll need to complete 8 laps (26.4 miles) and a half marathon will be 4 laps (13.2 miles).

Early Bird fee (before 01/08/17) - £16 (£18 unaffiliated)
Standard fee (01/08/17 - 31/12/17) - £18 (£20 unaffiliated)
Late Fee - (01/01/18 - 30/01/18) £22 (£24 unaffiliated)
No entries on the day

There is an entry limit. Once the event gets down to the last places we'll endeavor to make people aware through social media and emails (join the mailing list here!). Once the event is full a waiting list will be created. Contact for information on this.

You do have to pay to park (£3.00 at the time of writing). This money goes directly to the country parks, they are great spaces that do need money and this is their main revenue stream. That said, be a hero and car share, save money and the world!

Course map/course description
In summary, it's relatively flat with a few little rises that you might not notice much on the first lap, but you might do at the end of 6 hours! Underfoot is crushed stone with a very small section of single track and a few areas that are a little looser than others. It is a very runnable course.
