Race Details

The Solstice 100 will take place on Saturday 20th June 2020. It is a 100 mile relay race around a 2 mile trail loop through field and forest of the majestic Bodrhyddan Estate. Each of your team of 5 will take it in turns to do a lap of the route, completing the 100 miles between sunrise and sunset of summer solstice - just under 17 hours. This event is a test of performance and perseverance that will test not only your physical ability but your mental fortitude.

Each team will have 1 electronic timing chip to record lap times and keep track of how many laps have been completed. This timing chip will be passed from one team member to another at the Start / Finish line through the main checkpoint. Runners will be able to access their tents, supplies and the facilities at any time during the day. Just be ready when its your turn to run!

If you have tried shorter races, like 10k or a half marathon, this race will test you and stretch you. If you are used to running longer distances, this race offers a unique test to run on and off for the duration of the entire day. Whatever your previous experience you will enjoy the new challenge and will always remember that time you raced in the Solstice 100.
