We have designed a Bespoke medal for the event, which you will receive at the end of the race. Or if you choose the lucky dip finisher option (if available), you will choose from a selection of previous or finisher medal.

This route is all road. You will pass through the villages of Higham, Gazeley, Ashley, Dalham and Denham.

Great run. Beautiful scenery. My first 10K so I was a bit worried about running on snow but it was easy to run in as compacted down and not slippy. Very helpful hosts and great refreshments after the race. Would have been nice to park here but then I probably wouldn’t have had a good warm up walk first. (Hill entrance to race course was too slippery for most vehicles)

Very well organised. The weather was cold and snow was on the ground. Advice on the day was given by car park marshal. Good facilities and the organisers and ladies doing refreshments were friendly and chatty.
