Daylength 7 hours 50 minutes and 11 seconds

As the sun rises over Hereford on 2nd January 2023, a team of Couriers (and friends) will begin an ultra-new year challenge to raise awareness of the campaign to refurbish Hereford’s Athletics Track.

Starting at Halo Leisure Centre, their new year’s resolution will be to run as far as possible before leading a mass community run around Herefords’ athletics track at sunset.

The eight-mile course designed for the challenge follows footpaths and quiet roads around Hereford, with shops and even a few pubs en route.

With a social and steady 10-minute mile pace and time for tea and snack breaks, each loop will take roughly 1 hour 30 mins to complete. After each lap, Halo Leisure Centre will treat the ultra runners to free hot drinks and use of facilities.

Run it all, run one or two loops at the beginning, middle or end, or join us for the mass ‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down Lap’ on Hereford’s much-loved track.

Approximate start times of each loop.

Loop 1 – 8.19 am
Loop 2 – 9:50 am
Loop 3 – 11:20 am
Lunch 1 pm (ish)
Loop 4 – 1.20 pm
Loop 5 – 2:50 pm
Community don’t let the sun go down lap 4:08 pm
