The Thorners 110 “Han” Solo & Relay
“On the 15th June 2020, Mark lost his fight against Liver Cancer after a three-year struggle following his terminal diagnosis in 2017 when he was only given six months to live. He crammed an enormous amount of living into those three years making fabulous memories with his family & friends & also ran the GUCR 145mile race from Birmingham to London, the Javelina Jundred in Arizona & the Bello Gallico 100 miler through the Ardennes Forest in Belgium. We’re hoping that the routes on each section give the sting in the tail that Mark liked to give when he planned the Canary Trail routes for the Headtorch Marathons.”
The races start at Mickleham Village Hall (Race HQ) and will involve four loops varying between 26 & 31mile distances. The majority of each loop will be on the trail with short sections on pavements & along roads.
The hall will also act as the changeover point for the relay teams. Each team will consist of four runners each running a leg of the race.
Each runner should aim to be totally self-sufficient on each leg but we will have a water station at roughly the halfway point of each section.
A social race with a difference.
All profits for this event will go towards Liver Cancer Research at Kings College Hospital
