Route description
Route description

Race the setting sun on Prestwold Hall's motor circuit, around one of the country's longest airfields on the scenic grounds of the Prestwold Estate. The flat and fast course provides the perfect venue to chase your personal best in either the 5k, 10k or Move Mile.

Bring the family along to cheer you towards the finish line, or even race with you as children of all ages can run the well-marked and marshalled Mile.

The race is also wheelchair accessible.

Did the 10k in 2019
Really good event. Well organised and the goodie bag at the end is ace. Flat enough for a PB but a very windy 2K stretch makes this course challenging enough.
Did the 5k in 2018
As this was my very first race I've every done, the atmosphere was really good and there was lots going on too. Everyone helped each other by cheering you especially the volunteers who helped run the series. Very well done can't wait til next year. The medal and t-shirt were a awesome addition.
