Mizuno Endure24 Reading & Leeds
Reading 14th – 16th June 2019
Leeds 28th – 30th June 2019
The multi award winning Endure24 is a unique event in the running calendar, it mixes serious ultra-running with a 24 hour team relay race. Virtually anyone of any ability can take part and enjoy a challenging but rewarding weekend of running. Our five mile woodland trail routes are incredibly scenic and end with a loop around the race village where the awesome support from 8000 runners and spectators never stops. Friends , family, and support crews are welcome . Team listings are in the Download Centre and solos in Trail & Ultra
Mizuno Endure24 is all about the teams, run as a pair, small team of 3-5 runners or a large team of 6-8 runners in mixed, all female or all male categories. At Reading over 3700 runners (the male/female split is close to 50/50) will run as part of a team. There is no need to worry about how fast you are, just complete as many 5 mile laps as you can in 24 hours. Most people will complete between 3 and 5 laps, many people will run much further than they ever thought possible. Running clubs arrive on mass, many fielding several teams and some with over 120 runners. Running has never been this much fun!
Mizuno Endure24 welcomes serious ultra-runners, Endure 24 might be quirky and fun but don’t be fooled, for the solo runner it’s a seriously competitive ultra race that will leave you broken. Solo and pairs benefit from their own camping area within the race village close to all the facilities and a dedicated covered support area. Solo ultra-runners get amazing support from the teams. The solo category sells out in minutes. The male solo record is 135 miles set in 2016 by Paul Beechey at Reading and equalled at Leeds in 2017 by Alex Tate. The female record is 130 Miles by Erika Trevblanche in 2016. Around 15 – 20 runners each year join the 100 Mile Club receiving the coveted yellow 100 mile club t-shirts.
