From the organizer

Organizer's website

This series back for the EIGHTH year organised in partnership with Wokingham Borough Council 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 2019

    Great, friendly event and well organised. Running both 5km and 10km at the same time makes the start very busy, but was not a major issue. Will definitely be back next year.

    Reversing the course made it much better (last 2K of 5K very boring in other direction). Consider managing the dust though.

    Car parking payment at Dinton a complete shambles - takes ages having to enter number plate details - can't you liase with the park to arrange to collect parking fees?.

    Did the 5K in 2019

    I much preferred the reversed course (July) there weren’t the bottle necks. Always a fabulous event. Volunteers are fantastic and from registration to collecting your timing print out it all runs super smoothly
