The Lemur Loop 10k and The Lemur Loop 12 Hour, 14th November 2020 9am – 9pm, Cricket St Thomas, near Chard

New for 2020 If you are running the 10k only, you can start at any time of day before 2pm. Just turn up get your race number (unless we post them out in advance), let us know you are starting and off you go. You will get a chip time for your loop.

All 12 hour individual runners and ALL 12 hour team members will start at 9am.

The fastest loop recorded will count towards the Inter Club Competition. This will be awarded to the club with the lowest average (mean) run time. There is no limit to the number of club runners, however, club affiliation must be advised at the time of entering and finalised by the 11th November 2020.

The 12 hour endurance event is for solo runners and teams of up to 6. The aim is to complete the most loops in your individual prize category, listed below. This is not a relay and once the first loop has been completed, runners can start a new loop at any time during the event. This means that teams of 6 could have all 6 runners out on the course at the same time.

To count towards the individual or team total, all loops must be completed by 9pm.

Prizes will be awarded in the following categories;

  • Male and Female Individual
  • Male, Female and Mixed Pairs
  • Male, Female and Mixed Team of 3
  • Male, Female and Mixed Team of 4
  • Male, Female and Mixed Team of 5
  • Male, Female and Mixed Team of 6
  • Fastest Lap Male and Female

Each of the categories will have individual leader boards, so teams can determine tactics throughout the day. For example, at 7pm perhaps your team of 4 might need 4 laps to take the lead in that category, then you would need to rally all team members to get out and run 1 more loop altogether and finish before 9pm to become champions.

In the case of an equal number of laps completed by a team in the same category, the winners will be determined by the earliest finish time of day of the last lap.

Head torches will be mandatory for all laps started after 4pm. This may be earlier and is at the discretion of the race director. The route will be clearly marked and key areas will have lighting during the hours of darkness. A mandatory kit list will be announced well in advance of the event.

There will be a pits area for team members to recover, eat, drink, sleep, talk tactics etc. Gazebos are advised maximum size 3m x 3m.

Various hot and cold food and drink options will be on site for the duration of the event.

Chinnocks Chase

The Chinnocks Chase is a 10 km trail run set in the stunning countryside around the Chinnocks in South Somerset, encompassing stiff climbs, long descents, tracks, lanes, fields, stiles and holloways in beautiful, rolling countryside. Running territory at its best, the 10 km is a tough trail run through stunning scenery, don’t expect a personal best! There is also a shorter, flatter 5 km run for the less adventurous but with equally great surroundings, and the 2 km is a fun run for our younger competitors or anyone else who would like a go!
