From the organiser

The Loggerheads Trail Races are back in 2019, for the 4th running of this popular event.

The usual 5k loop (twice for 10k runners!) will be used providing runners with a great variety of terrain and scenery some woodland tracks, technical descents, those very popular(!) steps and a stretch of country lane!

Start, finish, registration and facilities at Loggerheads Country Park visitor centre. The course is marked and marshalled, with the route offering real interest and suitable challenges for beginner trail runners and those more experienced also. Expect a great variety of terrain, with something for Trail Runners, Fell Runners and even a road section which road runners can stretch their legs on! Plenty of refreshments, facilities and parking available at the country park complex makes this an ideal location for a great morning out at the Loggerheads Trail Races. The 10k race will cover 2 loops of the 5k route.

    Loggerheads is a familiar setting for me but I never thought of running it until I saw the event. The course is excellent with the addition of the steps, you think you have done the hard bit but it just keeps going then once you have recovered you have to do it all again. Its the only course I know with steps, road running and a ramble in this area and would recommend it to anyone interested in trying something a bit different. It was very well organised.
  • Did the 5k in 2019

    I took part in the Canicross 5k race, well organized, well thought out and planned especially with the dogs- not a pb course, first half tough with steep steps! but 2nd half lovely including technical downhill and a flat run along the river back to the finish. Thoroughly enjoyed it once I finished!

    A great trail run event in a fantastic location. Organisation of the event was first class and communication before and during was excellent. Atmosphere was lovely, friendly and informal. The combination of 5k, 10k and 5k canicross was really nice. Ages of runners ranged from junior through to over 70's and was really positive and encouraging for runners of all abilities and levels of fitness. The course meanders through a stunning area of natural beauty, shortly into the race runners are faced with a reasonably tough section featuring quite a climb up onto a higher level of the limestone rocks, from the top it mainly levels out with some trail running through the forest on a variety of gravelly, muddy and uneven surfaces. An interesting but steady descent takes you onto a short stretch of unclassified tarmac road before making the final descent down to the stream which runs through the country park. The final stretch is along the banks of the stream on a gravel path to the finish of the 5k (the 10k runs the circuit twice). Parking at loggerheads country park is good and was sufficient for the over 200 entries. The run is finished perfectly with a visit to the cafe for a hot chocolate and cake. Food is very good and seemingly lunches are lovely. This is certainly an event that will now appear on my annual calendar. (At 59 I am new to running having only started in the past year after the previous decade of serious health issues ... trail and hill running has improved my life, health and fitness to a level that I would have never imagined)
