Ox Races

10-12th May 2019

Entries opening 20th July

Friday: Dark Ox

Saturday: Ox Frolic, Ox 50 Mile

Sunday: Light Ox, Ox Half Marathon

White Star running returns to the Rushmoor Estate with a variety of off road races in beautiful surroundings.

Dark Ox on Friday night for some dark action in Chase Wood and The Ox Frolic for solos or teams with each lap is 10.5 Km, so four laps = a marathon. Ox 50 is back as well with the usual stuff, do enough laps to reach 50 miles and boom! You are done. Thing is there is a generous cut off but if you won’t make 50 miles in that time you will get a 12 Hour medal and time so no one goes home empty handed.

The Light Ox on Sunday morning is a chance to run the quarter course in the light and if you finish quickly enough you can fit the half marathon in right after….you must be mad

Entertainment

Ox Races will have caterers and bar on site so you can be fed and watered whenever you need.

Dark Ox – Friday 9:00pm

Affiliated: £22.50 Unaffiliated: £24.50

Quarter marathon (10.5km)

2 Hours

Dark Ox Quarter Marathon to compliment the other Ox races.

Note the course is on rough woodland trail and will be steep in some places, up and down. The course will be marked and sign posted, the signs may or may not be lit by flashing lights, there will be marshals on the course so you don’t get lost. We will have an ambulance on site to collect the wounded and White Star Running will offer free corpse retrieval before you start to decompose too much.

There won’t be a moon so don’t expect Werewolves, that said there are other dangers, falling over or running into things, also you enter at your own risk:

Note: Compulsory kit check at start, no working head torch, no race. No headtorch no race…no woman, no cry. If you are in any doubts about this race don’t enter, we won’t hold it against you.

Ox Frolic – Saturday 8:00am

Solo: £39 Pair: £70 Trio: £105 Quartet: £140

10.5Km per lap

12 hours

The Ox Frolic is a race for solos, pairs, three and fours. Tougher course with each lap is 10.5 Km so four laps = a marathon.

We want a big fun sociable event for clubs, friends groups of mates, so the transition area to swap from one runner to another will be right next to the bar.

So main medal and then the mini medal for team size hangs underneath. (Solo runners, Pairs, Teams of 3, Teams of 4)

To get the bling all the runners have to do at least one lap each after that feel free to sit in the bar and cheer the others on.
