October 6th sees our inaugural trail running event. Inspired by the wonderful scenery and endless trail options the venue offers.

Starting at Tenantry Farm, already a well-proven event venue for equestrian events, parties and weddings, it offers a perfect base for trail running. From here participants will run through the farms grassy field margins before joining public bridleways. The course splits at approximately 1 mile, here half marathon runners make their way to the ancient Ox Drove, before taking an even older route, following a Roman road through enchanting woods. They come out on the Martin Down nature reserve, home to a huge diversity of rare wildlife that thrive on this vast expanse of unspoilt chaikland.

The history of the area continues, as runners pass through the site of a WW2 rifle range, and follow the mystical Brockely Dike to the high point of Martin Down. Here the will undoubtedly want to catch their breath and take in the stunning views before descending into the charming village of Martin. At this point a welcome aid station marks the point where the 10k runners re-join the main course, and a short but steep climb brings runner onto a bridle path overlooking the start point at Tenanary.

Both groups of runners now drop down into the valley and up the other side before entering 'The Jungle', passing spring pond and finally taking the gently ascending avenue that returns them to the start, where medals and refreshments await.

The event is aimed at runners and walkers of all abitities, and though far from flat, does not represent a tough event. We aim to make the event as enjoyable as possible, with a well marked course, ample aid stations and the great facilities offered by the old dairy buildings at the start/finish.

Really great quality medals await all finishers.

No cut-off times are imposed, but a sweeper used to check everyone completes the course safely.
