Salcey Autumn Challenge route

This is a flat course with minimal elevation changes.

The route is along well-maintained pathways, mainly on crushed stone. Obviously being in the middle of a forest, the narrower ones are covered in tree detritus and can become a bit muddy, especially when wet.

Event Details

What’s Included

- Event specific finishers medal (a nice one too!)

- Some sort of specially crafted liquid and solid goodies! Details will be dependent on each event, but in the past we have had beer, cider, flapjack and apple juice.

Raceday Logistics

There is an entry limit. Once the event gets down to the last places, we'll endeavour to make people aware through social media and emails.

No entries on the day please.

Kit List

On a dry day, road shoes will be perfectly acceptable; on a wet day, trail shoes may be a better bet as some parts can become a bit slippy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this event cupless?
Yes. It's obviously good for the environment to reduce plastic use and general waste. You won't break a world record having to stop to fill a bottle of water or carry a hydration pack, but over a marathon distance it would probably add less than a minute to your time. We will have water, isotonic drinks, tea and coffee and real Coca Cola for you, but to be clear, we won't supply disposable cups for drinks. You can buy a foldable cup from us on the day.
Is there entry on the day?
No entries on the day
Is there parking?
You do have to pay to park (£4.00 up to 2 hours £6 all day at the time of writing). This money goes to the forest, it is a great space that needs money and this is their main revenue stream. That said, be a hero and car share, save money and the world!

Are you the organizer? Claim this page

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!
