The Dirty Dozen

Super simple orienteering in the woods

4.2 MPH

Run a 4.2 miles per hour, every hour for as long as you can up to 12 hours.

The 12th lap is a race.

The event will take place on the 5th of September. The first group* of runners will set off at 10am.



Out of stock



Every hour you will need to complete a 4.2 mile lap. If you get back from the lap in 40 minutes, you will have 20 minutes rest before starting the next lap. Laps are not timed, you just need to get back from each lap within the hour.

Everyone who completes 1 or more lap gets a medal with a star on for each lap you completed. Medals are shown here and are for illustration purposes only, the final medal may differ from the one shown.

If you manage to complete 6 lap (6 hours) you will have done 25 miles and have 6 stars... Question is, how many you going for? Doing all 12 laps will mean you've done 50 miles!

The winner is decided by the runner who completes the final lap in the quickest time.

Each laps starts from the race HQ, where there will be water aplenty. Your cars will also be accessible each lap, so you can bring along anything you need to get you through as many laps as possible. Marshals will be ready to help you navigate the course successfully as well as get you ready for the next lap! Check out our blog post on this event - Dirty Dozen : Research.
