Thames Ring 250

The UK's longest ever non-stop running race, the Thames Ring 250. Two hundred and fifty refers to the distance in miles, and the cut-off time is 100 hours. Nearly ten marathons in four-and-a-bit days. It's organised by the two chaps that mastermind the Grand Union Canal Race (145 miles, and until this week, the longest non-stop running race in the UK) and in wonderfully understated British style, the Thames Ring doesn't even have a website.
