Equinox24 began in 2013 with under 300 runners and has grown in popularity year on year. The idea for Equinox24 came to Johnny and Laura Nicol on a long car journey in early 2013. By the time they reached their destination they had the date, name and venue planned and the race opened entries a few weeks later.
“We LOVE equinox24 and we think this shows at the event – we like to be involved in every part of the event (well, we have to be – there are no other staff!).”
Johnny and Laura also run multi-sports events company, Racetime Events, which was formed in 2009. Johnny has spent years competing in running events ranging from 5k to marathons and triathlon events ranging from Sprint to Ironman diatance, along with other challenges such as mountain biking and bike racing. After being involved with organising local events and seeing the need for more, we decided to set up Racetime Events to try and give athletes in Leicestershire quality events. Racetime Events has grown to now host five adult triathlon, two junior triathlons, cross country runs at Bradgate Park and a cycle sportive.
We have recently opened a training venue, Race Hub, at Six Hills in Leicestershire where we offer open water swimming, Wattbike indoor cycling studio, triathlon/bike shop, coffee shop, bike workshop, bike fitting and sports massage. We also run a successful triathlon team.
