The Wild One: Multi Lap Marathon

22 Jul 2018

Fun multi-lap marathon event raising funds for two fantastic Worcester-based charities; Maggs Day Centre and Worcestershire Young Carers (YSS). The race is on Sunday, 22nd July 2018.

Run solo​ and cover the full marathon distance or enter in pairs​ or teams of five​ as a relay event. 10 laps of off-road fun around a combination of grass, wooded trails and tarmac (2.62 miles per lap).

Snazzy bespoke medal and goody bag for all finishers. Prizes for fastest marathon times, best fancy dress and fastest lap. Entry is £16 ​per person for affiliated runners (£18 ​unaffiliated). There are no booking fees/charges for entering online.

Ultra Wild One (new for 2018): Are 10 laps not enough for you? Continue on and there will be a prize awarded to the solo, pair and team with the most laps completed within the 7 hour cut off (4:30pm). You will still receive a finish time for the marathon as well as a record of the number of laps completed. There is a £5 per person charge for taking part in this.

Wild Mile: Also taking place is the one mile Wild Mile​ kid’s race. Entry is £3.50 (enter online or on the day). Medal for all finishers (parental supervision advised for anyone under 9 years old).

Fancy Dress: This year’s fancy dress theme is TBC (revealed 12th February after a vote). Fancy dress is optional but we hope people enter into the spirit of this event.

Frequently asked questions

How do I enter everyone in my team or my partner as a pair? You can still use the traditional paper form along with a cheque, but the best way is to enter online through this page. If entering as a pair or team, each person will need to be entered individually. Each of you can do this separately, or one person can add each person as long as they have their details by adding each entry to the basket.

Can team members or pairs run together? No, only one person can be on the course at one time.

As a pair, can one person run more laps than the other? Yes, as long as complete 10 laps between you, it doesn't matter how you split the laps. This can be a good option for marathon training, where one completes 8 laps (20.96 miles), the other 2 laps (5.24 miles).

A team member has pulled out, what now? You can replace members of your team or your partner (if entering as a pair). Just let us know at number pick up on the day, so we have everyone's correct details. There are no refunds once entered.

What results will be published? Will they go on Power of 10? Solo entries will be recorded on Power of 10 and Run Britain Rankings with the marathon finish time. Relay events are not compatible with these sites, so won't be recorded. Full results will be added to this page as soon as possible after the event.
