As well as being an open race (available for all runners to enter), the National 100k will be the British Athletics National 100km championship and the official trial race for those aiming to represent Great Britain at the 2014 IAU 100km World Championships. The race also incorporates the Anglo-Celtic Plate (ACP) on behalf of England Athletics. The ACP is an annual home nations’ team event, celebrating its 20th year.
Alongside the National 100k we are also hosting the National 50k race. The 50km (31.1 mi) distance is perfect for marathoners looking to step up to ultra-distances. Fast marathoners may like to challenge the British 50km all-time records see here. The distance is also great for seasoned marathoners who like to run for great finishers’ medals!
The 2014 National 100K and 50K are being hosted at Cyclopark in north-west Kent. Cyclopark is the largest cycling centre in Europe and includes a range of facilities including a racing surface consisting of several kilometers of freshly-laid smooth tarmac.
Both races will make use of a 2.1km circuit. The 100km race will be 48 laps. The 50km race will be 24 laps. Both races will make use of an offset start to ensure completely accurate distances.
