Big Bear Events
The majority of our events are challenge events - multi-lap races with a time limit rather than a set distance. This means people can run all different distances on the same day, making for a great atmosphere. Lapped events can get some negative feedback but our laps are around beautiful locations. We avoid out and back laps and coming back to the wonderful aid station (full of your requests) can be a good motivator. Whether it's your A race, you need to do some long training runs, you have a 100-mile ultra in a few weeks or you want to hammer out a quick 10k, our races allow everyone to get involved together. We’re also expanding our mid-week evening 10K series too. Keep an eye out for updates on these as we are continually adding more. Expect the same care and attention and in the same great locations!

Can I enter the Bluebell Challenge on the day?
Unfortunately, there will be no entries on race day.
Is there an age cut off for Bluebell Challenge?
Yes, entrants must be at least 17 years of age to enter the event.
Will there be free parking at the Bluebell Challenge?
No, but parking will be available for £2.50. All money from parking will go straight to country parks.
Why is it called the Bluebell Challenge?
Harsthill Hayes has some beautiful bluebells so you should hopefully be running through them! The event was booked over a year before race day though so if it's especially hot, cold, wet or dry, we might miss the short bluebell season.
Is the Bluebell Challenge cupless?
Yes! It's relatively common in ultra running and trail running if you haven't come across it before. It really is simple and impacts your race very little compared to the hundreds of years it takes for the plastic cup to decompose! Ultimately, the organiser will not be supplying cups for drinks.There will be plenty of water, electrolyte, squash and coke. Essentially you just need to bring a vessel with you for liquid.
This event currently has no reviews, why not be the first? You could help someone find their perfect event.
