Route information
Set in beautiful Oxfordshire, this 10k race begins outside Storton Lodge, the local Scout Centre, and from the start climbs steadily through quiet country lanes. Coined as one of the most enjoyable 10k races in the UK and organised entirely by the Goring Primary School PTA, runners will enjoy pacing alongside the River Thames, with views of the beautiful English countryside at the top of the highest point of the course at 95m. All the proceeds from the race will benefit the students of Goring Primary School, with the hope to build the students a new library.
The course will be one lap of the route, and runners can look forward to refreshments and cheering spectators as they cross the finish line at Bourdillion Field.

Address: Storton Lodge, Icknield Rd, Goring, Reading RG8 0DL, UK
While there are several car parks around the village on the day of the race, it is recommended that entrants come by train. Goring and Streatley Stations is about a 10 minute walk from the school.
Car:
From the M4
Exit at junction 12 on the M4 and follow signs to Pangbourne. At the mini roundabout in Pangbourne go straight on towards Streatley. At the traffic lights in Streatley turn right and follow the road down and over the river into Goring.
From the M40
Exit at junction 6 and follow signs to Watlington. At the T junction in Watlington turn right towards Benson. In Benson turn right at the T junction and then after 200 metres bear off left towards Wallingford. Go straight over the Crowmarsh roundabout towards Reading. Go straight across the next roundabout, then bear off right to Goring on the B4009.
Rail:
One of the easiest ways on the day is to come by train to Goring Station, which is on the main westbound line from Paddington. If coming from further afield than Reading or Oxford, you will need to change to a local service at either of these stations. From the station it is a 10 minute walk along the Wallingford Road to Goring Primary school. The route from the station will be clearly signposted, and there will be marshalls in hi-viz jackets to help anyone who needs assistance.
Parking:
We recommend parking at the Station, Sheepcot field parking on Gatehampton Road and village centre car park.

A great local race supporting the School at Sonning. It's worth arriving in good time as parking is a 10 mins walk from the race start. There was good organisation, outstanding flapjack at the end, and a superb rollercoaster of a course which starts uphill for the first kilometre and followed by a brilliant downhill stretch. Most of the race in on road, a little on grass and footpaths. The final Km is downhill, excellent for the strong finish, and that flapjack :)

A fantastic hilly 10k in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. I would definitely recommend!! Shame about the weather this year but that just added to the challenge...

Would have been good to avoid the sloppy grass section, but the main killer was the wind, which we can hardly blame the organisers for! Overall, a very good event and the flapjacks at the end truly outstanding
