Not  Running in 2019 

A run through the forest on a Summer's afternoon, on a fully marked and signposted course with no cutoff time with a shiny bespoke medal awaiting you at the finish.

Test yourself on this beautiful trail run over five miles in the Gravel Hill and War Down areas of Queen Elizabeth Country Park where the hard work of the mile uphill is rewarded with over three miles of downhill, not forgetting the drinks and snacks at the half-way checkpoint on the way round.

The finish

Awaiting you at the finish is this very shiny bespoke medal designed specifically for the event.

Also at the finish, relax and enjoy music, sports shop stand and post-race refreshments, including a fine range of home-made cakes and pastries.

There are also toilets and a cafe within a few metres of the start/finish area.

The course trails are of good quality, but this is quite hilly on parts of the course with around 190m of vertical ascent and descent, so light trail shoes are recommended.

Medical cover is provided by GB EMS who will be onsite with crew at the start/finish, and crew in a 4x4 Ambulance.


There are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female, also age-group prizes for V40, V50, V60+ ladies and men.

A team prize is awarded to the first team to have three people finish.
