Manvers Dusk Till Dawn
This is an endurance event that is suitable for runners of varying ability. The concept is simple, you run as many 3.21 mile laps of the lake as you can between 6PM on Saturday and 6AM on Sunday. Between these times you can start when you want and finish when you want. You can take break at any point have a rest and then complete more laps later, it is entirely up to you. The course is flat and is all off road on footpaths with no road crossings. If you are intending to run through the night you will need a good head torch as the course is mostly unlit. Each lap passes the club house where there are toilets, showers, rest facilities including a quiet room, hot food and drinks. There is also a bag drop and you will be able to call in to the club house on each lap for food and drinks. Parking is included in the entry fee and is located adjacent the club house. This is the third time the event has been held. The first time in 2014 some entrants only completed one lap but the winner completed a staggering twenty two laps (71.6 Miles) Some chose to run on their own and others ran it as a group, this is intended to be a “fun” event and competitors are supportive of each other. The 2016 winner was James Fletcher (Steel City Striders) who completed 20 Laps.
