Cool Weather ! Hot Fun !


November may just be the perfect month for running long distances - cooler temperatures usually mean faster finishes.


Don't worry about cool temperatures at the start, we'll have a warm building and heated tents for your use.


Once you finish, and have your finisher's medal around your neck, it is time to join the party in the Celebration Village in Knoch Park, adjacent to the finish line. There you will find hot and cold food, beer, live music and activities for all ages!
