Organiser's Description

The Midsummer Murder trail races return for 2023 - are you up for the challenge?

The event takes place in the truly remarkable Hambleden Valley, with mile after mile of staggering Chilterns' beauty, picture perfect flint stone villages, country pubs and a fair few hills.

Our 10 mile and Half Marathon trail running courses are very challenging, but also achingly pretty. We've tweaked the courses slightly from 2022, but all of your favourite features are still there. We take you through the beautiful villages of Turville & Skirmett, past the 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' windmill and of course start and finish in Hambleden Village itself.
