Polar Bear Challenge

What is the Polar Bear Challenge?

The Polar Bear Challenge is a 6 hour running event at Ryton Pools Country Park on Thursday 7th February 2019 at 09:00.
 

How far is the race?

You decide! The 3.3-mile out and back loop at Ryton Pools Country Park means your race can be just over 5k or, given the relatively flat nature of the course, potentially 49.5 miles! You decide how many laps you are going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance you'll need to complete 8 laps (26.4 miles) and a half marathon will be 4 laps (13.2 miles).
 

Entry Info

No entries on the day

There is an entry limit. Once the event gets down to the last places we'll endeavour to make people aware through social media and emails. Once the event is full you will be able to join the waiting list through this site.

You do have to pay to park (£3.00 at the time of writing). This money goes directly to the country parks, they are great spaces that do need money and this is their main revenue stream. That said, be a hero and car share, save money and the world!
 

Course map/ course description

The course route is above. You can see the type of terrain you'll be running through from our photos. In summary, it's relatively flat with a few little rises that you might not notice much on the first lap, but you might do at the end of 6 hours! Underfoot is crushed stone with a very small section of single track and a few areas that are a little looser than others. It is a very runnable course.
 

Has the event been run before?

Sort of! We have held 2 Big Bear Challenges here, this will be the first Polar Bear Challenge but it is the same in all but name! This will be part of our Bear Series. Check at RaceCheck for reviews of our previous events.

Is there a GPX file?

Yes above.
 

Where is it?

There is a map on the next tab. Use the post code CV8 3BG for Sat Navs. It is 15 minutes south of Coventry and 15 minutes from Junction 16 of the M1. The closest train stations are Rugby and Coventry.
