Ely Tri Club Run Fest 2019

29 Sep 2019

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

The Run Fest started out as just the Ultra event, and in 2014 became the Run Fest and added two other distances on the same day. In 2019 we are proud to be able to include the "Let's Get Moving 10k" in conjunction with East Cambs District Council to encourage people to move up fom the Couch to 2k programmes. So you now have the choice of the 10km, Half Marathon, Marathon or Ultra. It’s flat, the route is well marked and there is support on the course. With a few obstacles (steps, stiles, cattle grids) along the way, this is more of an adventure / fun (yes you read right) course than one to chase a PB on.
