The 6 Hour Road Race Series

We are pleased to announce a new series of three 6 hour races that will take place from August 2017 to April 2018.
First up will be the Preston 6 Hour which will take place on August 12th at the same location as Stan’s Foxton24 hour race at UCLAN. This is a great venue with all the facilities necessary and plenty of space and comes with all the benefits of running a track race.

The 3rd Chorley 6 Hour takes place at Astley Park on October 7th. This event, like all the 6 hour events, has an entry limit of 40 and Chorley is filling up quicker than last year. The course is a 732.234m loop and the race will start at 10:00 am.

The third event is also a new 6 hour race and will take place in Liverpool on Friday 27th of April 2018. Discussions concerning the details are ongoing and will be announced shortly.

6 Hours is a great distance for those who are curious to see what can be accomplished in 6 hours and forms a stepping stone to the 12 and 24 hour events that are more challenging. Getting beyond the marathon is not as difficult as it seems. Check out any or all of the races and discover what you can achieve on your own two feet.
