BRAND NEW MEDAL TO BE REVEALED! (Previous design pictured)

We have been extensively researching into what runners consider important, and sustainability is fast becoming the most important area. Click HERE to see what RunThrough is doing for sustainability.

T-Shirts at events have been a hot topic mainly around them not being a high enough quality to wear on a regular basis. So we have decided to tackle this by offering a RunThrough Kit Technical T-Shirt with a retail value of £22 for £12 with the addition of the event logo printed on the chest.

We can do this with our partner RT Kit as part of a strategic decision to not only raise awareness about the quality of the product but also to counteract the increasing costs incurred in event production in a post-COVID world.

 

Here at RunThrough we are always looking for likeminded people to join our community. We always value an extra pair of hands and would love for you to come along and help us! From managing stalls at the event village to handing out medals at the finish, our volunteers are a critical part of what make RunThrough events so special! If you fancy volunteering with us as a volunteer at his event or any of our other events please click HERE

Spectators are more than welcome! You can watch many sections of the race from the event village and roads outside of the zoo for free. However, if you’d like to enter the zoo you will require a spectator ticket. Colchester Zoo has reserved a limited number of tickets for friends & family of the runners to visit Colchester Zoo on the day of the race & these will be available to purchase in the few weeks prior to the event.

  • RUNTHROUGH EVENT PARTNERS

  • Baggage

    The car park is located next to the start and finish line and we therefore recommend leaving any belongings in your car. There will be an informal baggage drop located within the Event Village. If you wish to use the baggage drop, please collect a baggage label from the information desk and attach it to your bag before handing it in.

    You will need to show your race number again when collecting your bag to ensure each bag is reunited with its rightful owner.

    Toilets

    There will be portaloos within the event village.

    Refreshments

    There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish.

    During the race

    We will have marshals all around the course as well as km signs and arrows. The course will run through the Zoo, then out onto the closed roads for the 10k course before finishing back inside the Zoo.

    Results

    Results will be available on the website after the race.

    Pictures

    We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race and they will be on the RunThrough photos page after the race so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.
