Route information
Starting in the Medieval market town of Henley in Arden with its half timbered buildings and the earthwork remains of "Beaudesert Castle" the route passes through the village of Ullenhall and then the magnificent "Coughton Court" home of the Throckmorton family who were associated with the "gunpowder plot" of 1605.
The shorter route then returns to Henley passing huge swathes of newly planted trees and some of the remnants of the Ancient Forest of Arden in the form of "Bannams Wood" and "Clouse Wood".
The main course continues through the town of Alcester settled first in Roman times, but later chosen by the Marquis of Hertford who built "Ragley Hall" there as the family seat.
The way then skirts Oversley Wood and several more thatched hamlets before arriving at Aston Cantlow. A sharp left turn and in about a mile and a half we rejoin the short route through the swathes of newly planted trees.
What's included
All finishers will receive a digital completion certificate by email after the event, if you want a printed certificate on the day then order one in advance for £3 and we'll plant another tree for you.
There will be checkpoints on route. All will supply cold drinks and simple food, some will supply hot drinks but entrants should carry their own supplies to supplement these. Please note: IT IS ESSENTIAL TO BRING A MUG as cups will not be provided. There will be hot drinks and a meal at the finish including a vegetarian option. Showers and changing rooms are also available on completion.

The nearest train station is in Henley in Arden. Trains leave New Street every 30 mins on a Saturday - allow a 10 minute walk from the station. Note the first train arrives at 0806 so please use the train and save the environment and our parking space. Henley is also served by several buses from Birmingham and Solihull.
We're facing a real problem with car parking space and so need to keep the number of cars to a minimum.
As an incentive we'll plant an extra tree for every person using the "GoCarShare" scheme to get to the Forest Marathon.
