Survive 12 is the latest addition to the endurance family and with hills, mud and loops to contend with, a determination to succeed is compulsory for this event.
On Saturday 19 November at Irchester Country Park, Northamptonshire, 100 entrants will take part a new event that will redefine the meaning of the expression ‘adapt and survive’.
Open to solo/pairs/teams of runners, the aim is to complete as many laps possible of a 5-mile off-road course within 12 hours. The race starts at 11am and finishes at 11pm so head torches will be required. Add to this the unpredictable British weather especially in November and you have a recipe for a challenging event!.
There are 18 prize categories for this event including 1st, 2nd and 3rd male/female solo, pairs (male/female/mixed) and teams with a commemorative Survive 12 medal for all finishers. In addition, post-race nutrition from race sponsors USN.
This event may sound daunting but the organisers are keen to stress it is open to all runners irrespective of their age, background and experience.
Confirmation of this user-friendliness from Alan Rose, race director at Just Racing UK who said: “We are very excited about our first ever 12-hour endurance event. Survive 12 will suit a mixture of abilities. For those taking part as a team of three or four, each member can run as little or as many laps as they like within the 12 hours. We have also made the course challenging enough to keep the more experienced runners happy.”
