|Notes||A brand-new take on Run To The Beat will make its UK debut on the evening of Friday 25 May, as part of the inaugural Speedmachine Festival, which is being built around the British leg of the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy|
The event combines running, music and motorsport, giving participants the unique opportunity to run 5 or 10k of the iconic Silverstone race circuit to the beat of a live DJ. Tickets are live on www.runtothebeat.co.uk.
With music proven to enhance people’s enjoyment of running by 15%, Run To The Beat at Speedmachine provides the perfect location for participants to power their run with world-class live music from the Ministry of Sound’s Friday night takeover of the Main Stage.
Once runners are done, they will have the excitement of the festival to look forward to, with some of the country’s best independent street food vendors serving up delectable treats for all tastes. With the masters of dance Ministry of Sound playing late into the night, it’s the perfect way for participants to rev up for the weekend.
Individual day passes are available, as well as weekend and camping passes for runners who want to take in the full Speedmachine Festival weekend experience. Other weekend highlights include FIA World Rallycross Championship, manufacturer test drives, e-gaming, and live music from Dizzee Rascal, Basement Jaxx DJ set and others.
Speedmachine will form the British round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy. Ultimately, the Speedmachine Festival will deliver pure indulgence for fans of speed and cars across the May Bank Holiday weekend.
