Our event base is situated at Hughenden Manor. A National Trust property and previously the home of Benjamin Disraeli, a former British Prime Minister.

There is car parking, toilets and a cafe all available on site.

Course Details

The route consists of a 10.6km loop that runners can complete once, or twice for the half marathon.

The race starts with a downhill stretch within the estate grounds, followed by an undulating section to Downley Common.

The route then weaves its way in and out of the ancient woodlands, often revealing stunning views of the Hughenden Valley.

Expect a few hills and undulating terrain throughout. The course has a nice rhythm, and the final 2km is particularly enjoyable as you descend back to the finish.

Given the time of year, some sections will be wet and muddy. Trail shoes are essential.

How do I navigate the race route?
The primary form of navigation for all our races is via orange arrow markers and ribbons. Additionally, there will be several marshals at busier/confusing locations.

For our 50km races, you are required to carry a paper map (provided at registration), or have access to the GPS track on your phone or watch, just in case you need it as a backup.

What happens if I get lost?
Retrace your steps, looking out for a left/right turn that you may have missed.

If you have the GPS track on your watch or phone or are carrying a route map, consult this to help find the correct path.

If this fails, please call the event phone number.

Sometimes signage gets tampered with, if you think this is the case please alert the race director via the event phone number.

Remember, successfully navigating yourself around the route, is part of the challenge in a trail race, keep your head up and look out for signs at all times.

Yes, headphones are permitted, however, they must be removed at the start, when at checkpoints and at any road crossings.

Will there be toilets available on the route?
Most of our checkpoints have toilets, however, please check the specific race information to be sure.

What kit is mandatory?
Please check the 'Required gear' section on your specific race page.

Are pacers allowed?

How are road crossings navigated on the course?
Runners are responsible for their own safety while crossing roads, and if necessary they will need to stop to allow traffic to pass. We aim to have marshals at all busy road crossings to aid the safe crossing.

What happens if I'm injured or need to withdraw during the race?
In the first instance, please make your way to the nearest checkpoint, or walk back to a marshal (if you have recently passed one).

If you are unable to do this, and your injury is not life-threatening, please call the event phone number (provided in the race-specific communication).

In order to locate yourself and communicate this to us, we recommend having the OS Locate application downloaded to your phone.

In the event of a life-threatening injury, please do not hesitate to call the emergency services and then alert our event team.

Please return your timing wristband to a marshal before leaving the race.

What is the additional unattached entry fee?
