The first ever Enertor Running World Cup is coming and anyone can represent their country from 12th to 18th November 2018!
To get involved simply join the Enertor Running World Cup on Strava from November 5th. The winning nation will be the one with the largest number of miles run logged on Strava, divided by the number of people in the challenge at the start of the week – making it fair for all countries, big or small. The tournament will run for one week with a leaderboard updated each day.
The running world cup will be hosted at www.runningworldcup.com

The park is easily accessible by both foot and cycle. Cycle parking is available in the park.
We will have a secure area where you can leave your baggage. We recommend you bring as little baggage as possible. Your baggage tag is attached to your race number, you simply tear it off and attach to your bag. To collect, show your number to the baggage tent staff and they will help you find your baggage.
There will be plenty of portaloos brought on site for the event.
There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish. We have also ordered some flapjacks and fruit for when you finish :-)
During the race
We will have marshals all around the course as well as km signs and arrows.
The course is on the roads/paths in the park:
10k – 3 laps
5k – 1.5 laps
Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.
In terms of spectating, this park could literally not be any better, the fields are open and every area of the park is accessible to see people running round.
Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.
We will have a photographer taking a few snaps of the race and they will be on Facebook after the race so be sure to check it out and see if you can spot yourself.
Things to note!
There WILL be pedestrians, please be aware of pedestrians, cyclists and dogs. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We recommend you do not use earphones and you need to pay close attention to everything around you.
