For the second year running come and enjoy a perfect winter’s run with a difference on Sark.
The principle is simple, all you have to do is Start and Finish at Stocks Hotel (this is important as there are warm showers, food and a bar!) and in between pick up 4 pages from 4 books placed at 4 iconic stones on Sark.
We will give you your number at the start and off you go. You choose your route and can collect them in any order and using any route you like. The first person back wins.
Enter on your own or as a team of 2 or 4. If teams enter it is the first team back with all their pages (so best to split up!).
We have no idea how far it will be for you but we expect it will be around 10 miles if you run it all yourself.
The event will take place regardless of the weather so be prepared.
There will be one official water stop, at Stocks, so you are welcome to swing past during the race but it will add to your distance.
If you have never visited Sark before it is lovely and this will be a great way of experiencing the island in the winter. If you have been before then once again this will be a great way of experiencing the island in the winter!
Entry to the race is free but please give us an idea if you are coming so we can try to find books with enough pages. You are also welcome to bring presents/bribes for us as by then we will be entering our winter madness stage here on Sark.
A cheap and simple hot buffet lunch will be available at the hotel after the race, as will showers and changing facilities. This is another reason why numbers in advance would be handy (including non running, but eating, drinking, crying and crawling family and friends).
Sark Shipping boats are currently planned as follows: depart Guernsey on Saturday at 8am and 3pm and return from Sark at 9am and 4pm, and on the Sunday from Guernsey at 1pm and Sark at 2pm.
Stocks will be doing a special deal for any runner staying. They will give a £30 credit against anything charged to your room for any room with at least one runner staying in it (all you have to do is show them your number when you come to check out or during your stay). You will need to ring or email reception direct to book for the Saturday night if you want to stay for just one night.
