The Grand Union Canal 145 mile race

The Twelfth Grand Union Canal 145 Mile Race
Saturday 27th May 2006
(0600 Hours Gas Street Birmingham)
Held under UK:Athletics rules and with the kind permission of British Waterways, this non-stop race is from Gas Street Basin, Birmingham, along the way-marked Grand Union Canal Towpath to Little Venice, London. Competitors are recommended to have their own support crews, but up to 20 unsupported runners can be catered for by the Organiser. Previous finishers have found Britain's longest annual race seemingly tougher than many ultra distance events of similar distance.
British Waterways trophy for 1st Man and 1st Lady; certificate and memento for each finisher.
