Route information
This is a challenging but hugely enjoyable off-road 10k using some of the MTB course, footpaths and trails set within the grounds of Hadleigh Castle and which proved such a tough test for the Olympians in the summer of 2012.
The course will be two laps of 5km and runners can expect tough inclines and declines on grass fields and footpaths. There are also a couple of short sections with rocks and boulders, as used in the Olympic MTB races, to provide an extra challenge.
What's included
  • Finisher's Medal
  • Finish Line Goodies
  • Refreshment Station

Fantastic Day, well organised, Marshalls were brilliant around the course, encouraging all the runners. Everyone involved in the organisation of the event, I thank each one of you. A special mention to the Gentleman who runs the Mountain Bike complex, a big thank you for fixing my chain. Sincerely Runner 57.

Most challenging 10k I've ever run, but well organised, fab marshals, plenty of hills and mud and a great sense of achievement.

A tough, but really interesting course (you never run in the same direction or gradient for very long!). Very well run, with great marshall support all the way round (and you need it!). My third, will be back again next year.

Bit more organisation at start to get everyone lined up, but can’t fault the race itself. Course was challenging and fun.
