PHOENIX - Maverick Top Run 2

27th May 2022

Further information

Top Gun 2 - Maverick private CINEMA & Top Run 2rnrnHere we go folks - 3rd time lucky! This unique event with a premier day cinema + run has been thwarted by Covid-19 twice, but we will not be deterred, so here we go.rnrnIt's been 36 years in the making (2 years later than planned thanks to the pandemic), so here it is - the first ever Top Run + Top Gun (with private cinema showing before we go for a run). Phoenix Running is bringing you one of our Top RUN events with a unique difference - we're going to relax in front of the silver screen first and enjoy an advanced private showing of Top Gun 2: Maverick on the morning of its NEW, revised, revised release date - now Friday 27th May 2022. Then we're going for a Top RUN!rnrnThe morning private cinema showing - 10.00am to 12.30pmrnrnWe've waited 36 years for this, and so, at 10.00am on the new release day for Top Gun: Maverick we've hired out the whole of Screen 2 at the Walton Everyman cinema in Walton on Thames and they've even put in a special time slot for us so we get to see the movie first! This means we have 60 seats up for grabs at the very first 'RUN to the CINEMA' event ever staged by Phoenix Running and it even falls on a Phoenix Friday too!rnrnThe afternoon running event - 'rock up and run' flexible starts from 1.00pmrnrnTop Run 2 is one of our 7 hour timed events where you choose - from 5km to 10k, half to marathon to ultra, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.3km, 3.28 mile, out and back, course along the beautiful river Thames. We welcome all abilities of runner - complete one lap and you're both a finisher and a winner in our eyes, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full time limit and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers' medal.rnrnNot sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don't even need to decide in advance - simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if you feel the need, the need for speed.rnrnWhy are we doing this?rnBecause we're the best of the best! Oh, and despite the challenges of Covid-19 we're determined to make this happen.rnrnHow will the cinema bit work?rnWhen you sign up for the Top RUN, there will be an optional extra to also buy cinema seats, so simply select the number of seats you require and check-out. It's just a walk in the park Kazansky!rnrnCan I buy cinema seats but not do the run?rnYes, the more the merrier - remember, this is Top RUN - you're the best of the best, the top 1% of all athletes.rnrnWhen will you release the seats to those not doing the run?rnThat classified, I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. OK, its straight away.rnrnCan I buy more than one cinema seat - I.E bring my family or friends?rnYes you sure can, and why not use the opportunity to get them to do the run afterwards too and make a family and friends day of things! We allow runners from aged 12 to complete one lap and upwards, age dependent - see our T&C's link at the bottom of our homepage for details of running.rnrnWhere will race registration be?rnIf you're not coming to the cinema and are coming to the run then registration will be open from 12.30pm-ish at our aid station. The details will all be included in the final event information nearer the time. We might even make your race number your cinema seat number, because we are that cool. Turn and burn baby!rnrnWhat happens if things change and I can't make it?rnYou can make changes up until 2 weeks prior to the cinema showing at which point seats will be allocated and things will be all set. We won't pass seats on after this time. You can make changes to your run up until 7 days prior to the run.rnrnWhat if I insist on a flyby within the 2 week deadline or try and get a seat after the screen is full?rnYou'll get this message, Tower; this is Ghost rider requesting a flyby. Air Boss: That's a negative Ghost rider, the pattern is full.rnrnWhat if I don't like my seat and I fancy arguing with the tower?rnIf anyone does a fly-by on the tower at over 400 KNOTS, we will want somebody's butt, and we want it now!rnrnHow will seats be allocated?rnWe're going to allocate seats on a 'date of sign up', first come, and first served basis. I.E those who sign up first will be allocated the slightly more desirable seats in the centre of the cinema and then we'll work outwards. The cinema is a bit posh, with two seat sofas and armchairs so all the seats are really good - this is Top Run and we know you're not happy unless you're going Mach 2 with your hair on fire!
