WHAT IS EQUINOX24?
Equinox24 is a 24 hour race around a mixed terrain 10k loop against the clock. There is also a daytime 10k race and a night 10k race. The event is open to all abilities: whether entering to run solo or in a team of 2-8, whether you aim to win or just to take part, this race will be exhilarating, testing and rewarding with a great atmosphere. The 10k route will take you around the picturesque Belvoir Castle Estate in Leicestershire.
There is on site camping available from Friday to Monday for competitors and spectators with toilets, hot showers, food and trade stalls. Equinox24 is renowned for its welcoming, supportive and friendly atmosphere and is a great experience for runners and supporters alike.
You’ll find the Equinox24 physically challenging and mentally tough but an amazing experience not to be missed.
A weekend you will talk about for years, especially with those who share the weekend with you.
The 10km loop is within the stunning grounds of the Belvoir Castle Estate.
Belvoir Castle, standing high on a hill overlooking 1,600 acres of woodland, is a breathtaking backdrop for this event.
The course, which sits partly in Leicestershire and partly in Lincolnshire, has varied terrain so you’ll find yourself running past lakes, through wooded areas, up and down hills and round open fields. Whether you’re running through the night with a head torch or whilst the sun rises, there’s always a change of scenery for you to admire.
There are some sections of tarmac – but usually the option of large grass verges if you prefer. There is one long steep hill leading up to the halfway/waterpoint and a steep but short downhill off road section. The off road sections are over fields and around woodland and can be uneven ground to keep you on your toes. The final section takes you around the camping field where you will enjoy the support of fellow runners and spectators. The variety of the route will keep you alert and interested. This course has excellent capacity and no single file sections to make your running experience the best that it can be.
You are treated to countless breathtaking views on the course, from the castle up on the hill (which looks magnificent through the night when it is lit up), the mist rolling over the lower fields, the sun reflecting off the lakes, the surrounding villages – memories that will stick with you.
