Overview

One of the best kept secrets for trail runners in Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire - and less than an hour from London!

The Culden Faw Estate sits on the most picturesque banks of the River Thames - you'll run through ancient woodland, farmland and wildlife conservation areas. We're excited to be offering these new routes as a Purple Patch Running exclusive in November, December and January, guaranteed to be spectacular runs along bridleways and trails that make the most of the natural autumnal beauty.

With the usual Purple Patch approach to small, local events, all paces and levels of experience are welcome. With our tried and tested COVID-safe measures in place, you'll be asked for your target finish time when you enter to allocate you a limited-capacity starting wave between 8.30am - 10.30am. Our friendly marshals will see you round the course safely, before you collect your special stag-themed medal and other finishers' rewards.

Beware, this is not a 10k race! If you are paying good money expecting a measured course then this is not for you. All on strava or garmin logged 9.7 to 9.8km which was very disappointing.  Having said that, the scenery was beautiful.
