Challenge yourself this winter, and leave the traffic and tarmac behind as you take on this wonderful trail run. The 10k run takes you through the stunning Thretford Forest, along winding trails and great quality tracks. The beautiful location, with tall pines all around provides a chance to get closer to nature.
The race consists of 1 loop within the picturesque Thretford Forest, which will be well signed and marshalled. The race starts and finishes in a field adjacent to the High Lodge Arena.
