Big Flat Runway Races 2022
A festival of running on a PB course for everyone!
Launched in 2020 between lockdowns, the Big Flat Runway Races were so popular we're bringing them back for 2022. Road running on a runway, with a choice of distances, these are safe, flat courses to suit everyone, from beginners to those chasing GFA times for London, from parkrunners to club runners. Five road race distances are available (5K, 10K, 10M, half marathon and marathon) and every race is chip-timed, officially measured and UKA licensed. New for 2022: THE TEAM CHALLENGE Enter at least 5 runners (at least two men and two women) from your club, workplace or gym and you could compete to be BIG FLAT CHAMPIONS. For each race, there is a mixed team prize (5 members, at least two men and two women). And at the end of the day one team will be crowned BIG FLAT TEAM CHAMPIONS (minimum requirement 7 members, at least 3 men and 3 women, across 3 distances). Points will be awarded based upon finishing positions, and the team with the most points wins (bonus points will be awarded for every member of your team turning out on the day, so the bigger the team the better your chances!). And you can bring your supporters too, to make some noise! Set up team flags and gazebos in the Supporter Zone to cheer your team mates on to victory! Detailed rules will be published here: http://www.evensplits.events/big-flat-race. For those who don’t know, Elvington airfield is huge! The runway is over 3km long and there is a huge 19.8 hectares rectangular hardstanding apron for car parking. And that’s why we have chosen it, because there is more than enough open space to allow for social distancing between competitors before, during and after the race. You can run one of five road distances and get your special Big Flat Space Race medal.
