Our first event of the 2022 season sees us at a new venue, just a stones throw from our previous base. Our routes take you over a combiation of old favorites and new trails. 5k, 10k and half marathon courses take in the stunning countryside in this beautiful rural area. It should be noted that the 10k is acctualy 11.5k. Medals for all, trophies for the top three.

Our 5k race is designed to offer non-runners and recent starters to trail running a chance to try this fabulous sport. It's also open to children of 12 and over under UK AA guidelines, so fun for the whole family!

The 10k and half marathon courses take runners on varied courses starting and finishing at College Farm. The routes are 95% trail, taking in a variety of terrain over unspoilt farmland, footpaths and bridleways.

Good car parking and loos are available at the start, where registration starts at 08.00. Hot food and drinks are available all day. 

As the name implies, the courses take competitors over the undulating downland that is characteristic of the area, offering wonderful views of the surrounding countryside as well as ancient woodland, quaint cottages and historic sites. The routes are well marked, and well stocked aid stations at strategic points along the way keep the runners fuelled.

The terrain is rarely flat, but with no killer hills. Elevation is as follows: 5k 53m, 10k 122m and HM 300m.  Accent of the hills will reward runners with fabulous views.

The event is fully insured, and a professional team of medics in attendance. We ask all competitors to follow the countryside code, and carry a mobile phone, preferably with the what3words app. Runners are welcome to run with their dogs on leads on the 5k course, but not on the 10k or HM. We ask for them to be kept on leads whilst at the start/finish area.

The event is located at Summerlands Camping, College Farm SP5 4LP.
