8-10th May 2020
Friday: An Ox of 2 Halfs & 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.
A brand NEW one off race for 2020 – An Ox of 2 Halfs with quirky challenges along with your marathon distance race. Then also Dark Ox on Friday night for some dark action in Chase Wood.
Saturday see’s the return of the Ox Frolic for solos or teams where 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 Frolic 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
