Endure24 is a 24 hour race where you run against the clock to see how many laps you can complete before time runs out.
Run as a solo or as a team as you push yourself and each other further.
There’s nothing quite like the atmosphere you’ll find at Endure24, from the incredible support of your fellow participants and spectators, to the festival style campsite, all set against the backdrop of beautiful trails.
Bramham Park is a Grade 1 listed 18th-century country house, situated between Leeds and Wetherby. The house is surrounded by a 500-acre landscaped park ornamented by a series of follies and avenues. The 8K route ensures you’ll cover all the stunning areas of this unique venue.

Purchasing Your Places
Solo runners can get themselves sorted on their own and Teams just need to follow the steps below:
- Choose your team size and appoint a Team Captain
- Team Captain signs up and pays your team entry fee inc. booking fees (lock in your team now for just a £100 deposit excl. booking fees)
- Team Captain sends out invite links from their MyEvents Portal for Team Members to register
- Team Members sign up via invite from Team Captain and can add any extras like supporter passes at that point or later
Solo runners start with the main race at 12.00pm, they then carry on running as many laps as they can for 24 hours. They can have support crew (we strongly recommend this due to the nature of the event) in their camping area but not on the route. They can stop for rests and food whenever they wish. Solo runners should always leave the course at the solo exit/entry point or risk the timing system missing a lap. Solo runners may wish to consider starting later if they have a target in mind, want to avoid the busy early laps or if it’s hot, this is fine as your chip will pick up when you start. i.e. You may have a target of 10 laps and prefer to start running at 6.00pm as you are confident 18 hours is enough time.
*Please note that you must be 18+ to enter as a solo runner*
Pairs & Teams
Teams start with the main race at 12.00pm, they then carry on running as many laps as they can for 24 hours, each member of the team must complete at least one lap. You cannot use runners not registered in your team. Always leave the course at the exchange point or you risk the timing system missing you. Always enter the course at the exchange point or you risk disqualification. You do not have to have someone on the course at all times, teams can take a break and resume later in the race. People love the excitement of the mass start, but you can also opt to start later than 12.00pm if your team would like to have a quieter start.
*Please note that you must be 18+ to enter as a pair*
The team captain has a very important role in managing the team. They will be the person that entered the team and they have the responsibility of ensuring all team members are aware of the rules and in particular the health and safety aspects of the event. They may manage the team on the day but if they are running they may prefer to allocate someone else, possibly a non runner to manage the team at the event.
It’s important to have someone managing the run schedule and checking everyone is OK, you should also allocate a deputy to cover for sleep breaks. It’s not unusual for captains to be walking round with a clipboard and radio making sure everyone knows when to eat, sleep and run.
Check out our Captain’s Guide for more information.
*Please note that you must be 18+ to enter as a team captain*
Laps & Breaks
You can take a break anytime you like but always leave/enter the course at the correct point. You can carry on and do more than one lap or handover to your partner or team member. Only one member of a team must be on the course at any time*. Team and solo runners do not have to have be on the route for the whole 24 hours. You can take a break and resume the race when you are ready.
* The one exception to this is at the end of your final runners lap there is an access point approx 100m before the finish where team members can join their final runner for a team finish. Please be aware of solo runners as they may still be racing.
The finishing team member should pass the exchange wristband to their teammate at the exchange point. If your runner is not there (it happens) we suggest you carry on and do another lap. The exchange area is always busy but we ask you to stay off the route. There is a screen opposite the exchange area which shows a live feed and scrolls the names of the approaching runners to the exchange area.
Only runners are permitted in the exchange area. To be fair to everyone please do not enter the exchange unless you are a runner waiting to exchange, this includes team members not running, team captains, family and children. We will be checking this and disqualify teams ignoring this rule because it affects everyone else’s race.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer it threatens everything, for them and their family.
At a time when they should be busy being children, enjoying their rollercoaster teenage years or finding their feet at uni, life becomes full of fear. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, of overwhelming money worries, mental health stretched to breaking point, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.
At Young Lives vs Cancer, we get that. We are the charity that helps children and young people and their families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them. But every day 12 more children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer. We’ll face it all together – but we can’t do it without you.
