This event has passed. Congratulations to all the participants. Get race results and photos.

This series back for the EIGHTH year has become a firm favourite with runners of all abilities.

Follow one lap of a lovely off-road, traffic-free route around Dinton Pastures Country Park, near Hurst, Reading, to clock up 5km, or go round twice for 10km. Either way, its pancake flat and if you enter more than one race youve a great chance of seeing that PB come down month by month!

  • Did the 10K in 2017

    Enjoyable 10k. The only downside being a two lap course but that's the nature of the setting. Though being two laps enabled a 5km split on the chip which is good. Big puddles too and sloppy in places but not a lot you can do about that.
  • Did the 10K in 2017

    Great friendly atmosphere, felt like a proper local, community event. Loved the 'shout-outs' from the announcer at the halfway stage and finishing line, using our race numbers to give personalised 'shout-outs'.
  • Did the 5K in 2017

    I'm still a relatively new runner and older than most but was made to feel really part of the run series. The only reason I gave the course an OK was the huge lakes on part of the course! The organisation is tip top, i've never had to wait for a bar code and getting the time immediately is a nice bonus.
  • Did the 10K in 2017

    Ran my second ever 10k here and I couldn't have wished for a more welcoming race and accessible course!
  • Did the 10K in 2017

    I enjoyed it, first time I have ever run a whole 10K
  • Did the 10K in 2017

    Very well organised, and scenic route, despite the puddles!
  • Did the 5K in 2017

    Excellent race, well organised, everyone is very friendly and supportive. Second year of doing it
  • Did the 10K in 2017

    Very well run event as ever, friendly atmosphere.
  • Did the 10K in 2017

    A great series of races, particularly enjoyed the banana at the finish line and the supportive atmosphere. A lovely location, not just on roads. The marshalls really helped me get round the course with their positive encouragement.
  • Did the 5K in 2017

    I'm just getting back into running after a 3 year gap and this was a fantastic "easer in". it is brilliantly organised with a really friendly atmosphere. I'll definitely be booking for next year.
