Route description

This midweek event is the perfect excuse to get running, and sneak another event in the calendar. This multi-award winning trail run is a great way to break up the working week.

With 4 distances on offer, all the way from a 2k Fun Run to a 15k, everyone can find what they're looking for.

Did the 10k in 2021
Excellent organisation for social distancing. Super friendly Marshall’s. Beautiful scenery. 2 small points - car parking away from finish and didn’t realise so had no money at the finish and got cold. Advertising and crew kept mentioning the gin as if it was sponsored or a big feature so a little disappointed that it was just a bar at the end (as opposed to a tasting etc) But minor points on what was a great run
