6 Hour Ultra Run 2019

Chatelherault Country Park - Sunday 3 November 2019

 

SLLC is delighted to announce the date of our first ever Ultra Run which will take place in Chatelherault Country Park Hamilton on Sunday 3rd November 2019.

This event is suitable for experienced and novice ultra-runners.

The race is 6 hours long and organised so that you will run in daylight until the final 45 minutes.

Start time will be at 10:30, finishing at 16:30.

Head torches will be compulsory for the final 45 minutes.

 

Course Information

The main race loop will be approximately 6km long with the majority of it on forest trails and a short section on grass.

At 15:45 you will be given the option to finish the last 45 minutes on our shorter 1km loop or do a final 6km lap if you think you will complete this by 16:30.

Just remember if you do not make it over the finish line by 16:30 all that running on the last lap will not count towards your final mileage.

The course will be well marked and marshalled so you’ll have no concerns about getting lost.

Cold & hot water will be supplied for runners to use. Both will be available at the start/finish.

 

The event will be chip timed. You will receive your chipped number at registration.

Course Maps will be displayed on the walls within registration which will be within The Stables.

The above kit is the bare minimum you are expected to have on the day and some of it is just our own recommendations from experience at ultra-races.

Equipment and food/drink requirements are a very individual thing for each athlete, so please be sure to test things out in training as it’s the only way to know what will work for you. Please pack enough variations of clothes to cope with all-weather eventualities as well as enough in quantity to ensure you have dry layers to change into.
