Route information
Explore Sywell Country Park by traversing its woodland trail and stone pathways around its beautiful Reservoir. The elevation of the course is around 150ft with a large climb each lap. The rest of the challenge's course is undulating with fantastic woodland scenery as you enter Hayes Wood. This challenge is not for the faint of heart due to the climb each lap - but then would it really be a challenge? There is only a one lap minimum requirement so anyone from beginner to advanced is welcome to join.

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!
