Burn the midnight owl in this 12 hour endurance challenge 

Great Owl Running and Even Splits are joining forces to bring you the Burning The Midnight Owl 12 Hour Endurance Challenge.

Team up with some club mates and make a GANG OF 4, tag a running buddy to form a PAIR or, if you’re made of the right stuff, take on the challenge SOLO.

The course is a one mile lap of the Brownlee Cycle Circuit (home to the Leeds 5K series) at Bodington Playing Fields, Leeds. Starting at midday, you and your buddies have exactly 12 hours to run the one mile loop as many times as you can before midnight.

The challenge will be chip timed with results throughout the day.

You will be allowed to pitch tents in a special ‘pit area’ trackside and the Brownlee Centre café will be open throughout the day..
