Can I do it in Two Days?

You can complete a Mini Challenge (5km + 10km + Half) by running on just two days. Sign up for 5km wave 1 and 10km wave 6 (disregard any predicted times suggested on the reg form) and you will have at least 40mins between the start of each wave! Collect both race numbers at the start of the day, do a quick change over and off you go again :-) There is no option to do the Challenge (10km + Half + Marathon) across 2 days.

Can I do it in One Day? Yes!! Only in the August Event

Yes! The One Dayer, has at the time of writing, only been accomplished once in August 2018 where Adrian ran a 5km + 10km + Half Marathon in one day. Sign up for 5km Wave 1, 10km Wave 3 and Half Marathon Wave 3 (disregard any predicted times suggested on the reg form) and we will ensure there is a 40min gap between the 5km and 10km start times, and 60mins between the start times of the 10km and Half Marathon. This is only possible in the August Event. Collect all you start numbers at the start of the day ready for a quick change between events. Collect all your medals at the end. 

Finisher's Trophy

All runners who complete the Two Tunnels Challenge or Mini Challenge will take home a custom made laser engraved 3D glass cube featuring a train being raised back onto the tracks by two cranes.
