Yes, and that's what we are aiming for. You can run a regular marathon or an ultramarathon anytime. This could be something more. Yes, this is an immersive run, but you'll have some fun as well as something to talk about for a long time . Ask any participant who took part in 2021 what it was like.
Do I have to use the TRansport back to HQ, or can I just get a train home from London?
We would encourage you to use public transport to get the start venue at The Royal Gunpowder Mills near Waltham Abbey, and then get a train home from central London, but we will also put in a coach you can opt to buy a ticket for which will depart central London at 7am and go back to Waltham.
