What’s Included

The Athlons, all the fun of a run - walk- crawl with the added bonus of some thing special.

Most races you will ever do under 10k-ish, will have no feed, water or aid stations on the route, usually if you are lucky water will all be waiting for you at the finish line & possibly a snack!

The athlons all have a water/feed station every 2 miles or less, stocked with plenty of water and nibbles etc, and then Beer at the AleAthlon - whether you want a shot or a pint!

​Photos, all the athlons have professional photographers who's photos of you on race day, will be available free to download within a few hours of your finish, these will not be the usual finish line photos!

Course Details

Miles of sunny trails!! All the athlons are easy trail run/walks for beginners right through to seasoned athletes, the concept is simple; Cross the start line, follow the well marked off road routes to the first feed station, have a snack then away you go again following the route to the next station, then onto the finish.

FAQs

Is there an Age Restriction?

Due to the availability of alcohol at the WineAthlon and AleAthlon events we have to say Strictly NO under 18s, our policy is simple; if you are not 18 years of age or older on event day you will NOT be taking part, ID may be requested by any member of our team.

For the ChocAthlon, PieAthlon and CakeAthlon, no age restrictions, all under 16's must be accompanied by an appropriate adult

The wine is available for sampling purposes only, a single sample of wine will be available for each competitor, taking more than one will mean someone else missing out!

BE AWARE THAT YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF AGE

    Hi. My husband and I had an entry for this event in 2017 however were unable to participate due to injuries. We were told we could defer our entry but were unable to run the 2018 event too. Please can you confirm if we can take part in the 2019 event and, if so, what we need to do to transfer our entry. Thanks.
