Route description
Route description

Wendover Woods is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is managed by the Forestry Commission. Located on the edge of the Chilterns the Woods are great place to take the family, with lots of walking trails, a cafe, children's adventure playground, a fitness trail as well as the Go Ape high wire forest adventure.

The festival programme includes races over three classic distances – a Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k. All are trail races and will use the stunning forest paths and trails in and around the Woods.

Whilst the routes are challenging the events are open to runners of all abilities, from novices to experienced athletes.

The course is two laps for the Marathon and a single loop for both the Half Marathon and 10k. All races incorporate challenging routes using the trails and paths within Wendover Woods.

The routes should be quiet with no vehicle traffic, although there will be other forest users and bicycles crossing the routes, so runners should be alert to other users.
