PieAthlon route

Miles of sunny trails!! All the athlons are easy trail run/walks for beginners right through to seasoned athletes, the concept is simple; Cross the start line, follow the well marked off road routes to the first feed station, have a snack then away you go again following the route to the next station, then onto the finish.

Event Details

What’s Included

The Athlons, all the fun of a run - walk- crawl with the added bonus of some thing special.

Most races you will ever do under 10k-ish, will have no feed, water or aid stations on the route, usually if you are lucky water will all be waiting for you at the finish line & possibly a snack!

The athlons all have a water/feed station every 2 miles or less, stocked with plenty of water and nibbles etc, and then pie stations fairly evenly distributed around the course!

​Photos, all the athlons have professional photographers who's photos of you on race day, will be available free to download within a few hours of your finish, these will not be the usual finish line photos!

There are extra Pies and Peas from the Edge Cafe £5.00 (pre order during registration)

    Did the 6k in 2019

    Best laugh in ages, well since last year's PieAthlon. Very muddy and challenging and no chance of a PB , but just a wonderful friendly atmosphere. It's one for next year's diary.
