FAST AND FLAT 20 MILE SPRING MARATHON TRAINING RUN
It is after much uncertainty and with heavy hearts that we must announce that the Twin Lakes 20 cannot take place on Sunday 22nd March as planned. We had hoped that we could safely host the event as this is clearly what the majority of our runners want, however it has become clear from today’s Prime Minister’s statement that no gatherings should take place. Unfortunately we have already committed to many financial outlays, which cannot be refunded by our vendors so, instead we will be asking you to complete a 20-mile distance virtually. You can run your own course, at your own pace, anytime between 22nd and 31st March. You will need to upload proof of your achievement and then we will post your medal and technical t-shirt from early April at our own expense. Details can be found here http://twinlakes20.com/virtual-race/ We will do our best to answer any emails over the next few days. We are all in this together. Please be safe and join us in taking the necessary steps to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
The TWIN LAKES 20 is a 20-mile race that will prepare you for your Spring Marathon experience without having to run on your own. You can enjoy the incredibly scenic, superfast and traffic-free 2-lap course through stunning Buckinghamshire countryside. Lapping two beautiful lakes, following the picturesque River Ouzel and the Grand Union Canal, you'll never be far from water! The course is multi-terrain with about 80% on cycle paths with some gravel paths and the remainder on the canal towpath. The TWIN LAKES 20 is a friendly event organised by Dirt Running with 10 years running event experience, making sure you have the best day possible. This race is an ideal training run for anyone running Brighton, London, Milton Keynes or any of the other great Spring Marathons. Please help raise funds for Willen Hospice!
