The award winning Dirt Half Challenge will take place on Saturday 13th November 2021. The race starts in Leighton Buzzard and follows the canal towpath north to Stoke Hammond with stunning views, climbs through beautiful countryside to Great Brickhill then passes through the scenic Rushmere Country Park before following the Greensand Ridge back to the start via the canal towpath. This popular trail race sells out every year. The route will be clearly marked and marshaled

Wonderfully unique race as it it multi-terrain. 3 races in one: canal path and road, woods and the muddy field. Very well organised every year.
Absolutely superb event as always! I've done this race every year for a number of years now and it never disappoints. A great family feel event, great support and beautiful mixed terrain. Already want to book again for next year
