Van de website over de Severn Challenge:
A new race in town…
Ultra Running Limited is extremely proud to introduce ‘The Severn Challenge’, also known as ‘7’.
Is this the ultimate challenge? Probably not, but it will certainly bring the most seasoned ultra runner to their own personal edge of darkness. Utilising the longest riverside walk in Britain, ‘7’ takes you along 210 miles of path, from the source of Afon Hafren (Welsh for River Severn) to the mouth of the River Severn. Added to this the four mile trek to reach the ‘source’, the ‘7’ challenge commands an impressive distance of 215 miles.
‘7’ is split into five stages, over a five day period. Within the five stages are three unique races in their own right, with each having bespoke winner’s medals and trophies and t-shirts. Complete all five stages and you get a finishers medal and t-shirt for each of the three unique races and also for the Severn Challenge. In addition any competitor completing ‘7’ in less than thirty hours will receive the ‘soon to be coveted’ ‘7’ jacket.
We want every competitor to enjoy this challenge and at each Check-Point Station along the route, unlimited water and some nutrition will be available.
Immediately following completion of each stage, race results and ‘7’ competitor positions will be posted on our web-site prior to commencement of the following day’s race, with a brief race report, so that family and friends can get a glimpse of each competitor’s progress. At the end of each stage Ultra Running provide camping facilities and will serve an evening meal and breakfast the following day. Competitor food requirements between these meal times are the responsibility of each individual competitor. Please see list of mandatory items that competitors must carry.
The course distance is very challenging and for competitors own safety and fairness the event rules must be adhered to. Failure to comply with these rules may result in disqualification from this and future events.
