Owing to it's success last year, the SIBLYTHON returns for it's 2nd year in 2024.

Runners have 6 hours in which to complete as many laps of the lake as possible. Set yourself a target or just run free & see what distance you cover, the choice is yours.

Take rest stops whenever you like. 5 laps gets you a half marathon ( & a bit ), 9 laps gets you a full marathon.

(Please ensure you complete a full lap to have your distance recorded, do not get so far around the lake and walk back in the same direction. All laps must be completed in full to have a time registered).

5k & 10k - 0800hrs

2.5k - 0930hrs
