After the phenomenal success of the first ever Big Flat Runway Races, we are delighted to announce a return for 2021.
If we can’t plan to run the roads as we might like, our first Elvington event proved that we can race the runways.
Four road race distances will be on offer (5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon) and every race will be chip-timed, officially measured and UKA licensed.
For those who don’t know, Elvington airfield is huge!
The runway is over 3km long and there is a huge 19.8 hectares rectangular hardstanding apron for car parking. And that’s why we have chosen it, because there is more than enough open space to allow for social distancing between competitors before, during and after the race.
Before race day, every entrant will be sent their race number and a Big Flat Race Face sports snood. After the race, everyone will get a special Big Flat Space Race medal.
