The UK’s longest ever non-stop running race, the Thames Ring 250

“There is more in us than we know. If we can be made to see it, then perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less” – Kurt Hahn

The UK’s longest ever non-stop running race is the Thames Ring 250. 250 miles, to be completed within 100 hours. Nearly ten marathons in four-and-a-bit days…
In wonderfully understated British style, the Thames Ring doesn’t even have a website. You can see the route map here and some photos here from this magnificently understated, yet heroic challenge.
I went along to the start of the race in the unlikely surroundings of Streatley Village Hall in Berkshire. Here’s a 90-second video of what I found.
