24HR CONTI THUNDER RUN 2018

​Conti Thunder Run is Ten and Mickleover Running Club will be there to celebrate this milestone.

On the weekend of 21 & 22 July 2018 we will once again be taking over the grounds of Catton Park, Walton-on-Trent for the tenth edition of the Conti Thunder Run, the original 24 hour off-road challenge.

Conti Thunder Run is an off-road relay race against the clock. We will find it physically tough and mentally challenging, but it is an experience MRC didnt want to miss.

The varied terrain and technical nature of the course, the campsite camaraderie and team work, plus the good old British Summertime weather all add up to a weekend of staggering achievements and amazing memories.

If you’re not in team please come down to Catton Park and join us at the camp MRC and support us.


Catton Park

Catton, Walton-on-Trent, Derbyshire DE12 8LN

To avoid a narrow bridge at Walton on Trent it is best to approach from the A38 between Lichfield and Burton-on-Trent.

Leave the A38 taking the A513 signed for Tamworth and Alrewas. Head towards Tamworth on the A513, after approx.

1.5 miles you will go under a railway bridge.

Take the left turn immediately after the bridge. The event arena will be on the right hand side after about 1 mile.

The Course

The course is made up of a 10km cross-country circuit set in the picturesque Staffordshire countryside.

The track twists and turns across varied terrain so you'll find yourself running from woodlands and trails to steep hills and open fields.

There's always a change of scenery to keep you on your toes.
