The event was established in October 2015 by Steve Jackson, who has since then made sure that the event continued to grow. Today, it has become an integral part of the local community. Even tourists on holiday are welcome to join. As a result, many participants have forged friendships over the years, and it has given people another reason to visit Hamilton.
Joining the run is easy and there’s no fee: all that’s needed is to register on the Friday prior to the event by 6pm. The run starts on Saturday morning, with the meeting point at Lakes Edge Adventure Playground on Rippon Road in Hamilton.
