World Diabetes Day is a global awareness campaign focusing on diabetes. The day marks the birthday of Frederick Banting, who is noted as the co-discoverer of insulin.
2 members of our team are type 1 diabetics and so have to rely on insulin injections several times a day.
Course: 2.62 mile mile loop - flat tarmac path with a short section on gravel path.
Complete as many or as few laps as you wish within the 6 hour time limit.

As long as you complete one lap then you will be a finisher and receive an official time and post race gift.
