The race is reported as “always a favourite of off-road veterans, a few tweaks to the route this year have seen this race rocket to the top of the charts. The route is traffic-free, the views are varied but uniformly captivating, and runners can’t get enough of the steep, narrow climbs and copious quantities of mud.”
This event gives the unique opportunity to run through the estate which is mostly private.
Here’s what some of the runners who have taken part in the event before have said:
“This is what Sunday mornings were made for. Excellent race in every department.”
“Unmissable, a great experience in every respect.”
“Great muddy fun, tie your laces tight and enjoy.”
“My new favourite race !”
This is a privileged and unique chance to run on a traffic-free course over private land through an historic deer park and ancient woodland. With stunning views, your run will take in country estate former carriageways, three beautiful lakes, a Saxon hill fort topped with a Victorian folly and a number if natural springs. The hilly 10 mile (approximately!) one lap course is on tracks, grass and woodland trails — normally delightfully muddy in places – and some sections are steep, rutted and narrow.
