Route information
The Burnham Beeches is a Natural Nature Reserve situated just west of Farnham Common. Many of this woodland's trees date back several centuries and the area has been a site in a number of films, including the Harry Potter series.
The 10k and Half Marathon follow similar tracks, with the half differing slightly. The race will be run on the mixed terrain inside the woodland, over exposed tree trunks and under hanging branches, giving runners a cool shade from the summer sun.
This is a looped track which will start and finish within Caldicott School Grounds.
