Organiser's Description

Tittesworth 10k, Half Marathon & 50k Ultra – Sunday 16th July 2023

Looking for a challenge? Join us for the return of the Tittesworth Water trail event on Sunday 16th July 2023. Choose between 10K, Half Marathon and 50K ultra distance trail routes. All three routes are quite different to our regular RunThrough courses. They all include some steep climbs, fun descents and maybe even a stile or two! Whether you are running your first trail race or stepping up to the ultra distance for the first time, we have you covered.

All three routes start at the beautiful Tittesworth Reservoir and ascend Hen Cloud, offering stunning views of the reservoir and the surrounding countryside. After summiting, the 10K route then descends back to the reservoir, whereas the Half Marathon and 50K Ultra continue out across The Roaches and beyond. Full route descriptions for each distance can be found below.

The routes will be well flagged and we have plenty of helpers to encourage you on your way to the finish line. Both the Half Marathon and 50K routes will pass by aid stations to allow you to refuel and fill your water bottles. Included in your entry fee is a themed medal, water and post race goodies. Come and enjoy the day with us; we hope to see you there!

50km – 7am | Half Marathon – 9am | 10km – 9:30am

additional information

Due to the nature of this event it is going to be cup-less. This means that we WILL NOT be providing bottled water on course. We will have bottled water in our Event Village for pre race and also every finisher will receive a bottle of Actiph Water after they finish.
Instead, we will have Aid Stations on both the Half Marathon and 50K courses. At these Aid Stations we will provide basic food supplies and un-bottled water in jugs that our marshals can use to refill you water bottles/flasks. We recommend that all Half Marathon and 50K runners use a hand flask, running belt or vest with which to carry essential items, as well as food and water.
