Thunder Run 24
24 hour relay over a 10k course.

Of course you have to be mildly insane to enter a 24 hour race, even if you do it in a team of 8. Teams of 5 must have additional problems and those entering in pairs have probably escaped from an institution with bars on the windows. Those who are doing it solo … well they are elevated to the realm of the gods.

The idea is simple. Your team has 24 hours to get round the cross country course at Catton Park, Walton Derbyshire, as many times as it can between 12 noon on the Saturday and 12 noon on the Sunday. The rest is down to you.

This is a festival of running for people of all abilities. The camping is free and the facilities are excellent and there is of course a race village that stays open 24 hours.

ND Media joined the Sweatshop Running Community to see what it was all about.
