Overview

Returning to a traditional Spring race after the 2016 & 2017 Summer editions this event offers you a unique opportunity to run through pristine woodlands & open meadows in a privately owned estate with glimpses of the beautiful Fritton Lake and plenty of mud included! Run in conjunction with the British Red Cross for 2018 you can take the opportunity to raise valuable funds for this charity if you wish Both the XC 10km and the XC HM will start at Fritton Lake Outdoor Centre with the Half Marathon comprising two laps, and the 10km one lap of an off road course. With a route that takes in a complete circuit of the beautiful Fritton Lake, on woodland trails not normally open to the public, this is XC at it’s best. Enjoy stunning views, glimpses of the lake throughout the woodland and feel at one with nature as you challenge yourself in this event. With varied terrain of 90% undulating woodland and meadowland and a short section on tarmac drive, there is always the possibility of an extremely wet and muddy route due to the close proximity of Fritton Lake. Start times: Cross Country 10km 13:30, Cross Country Half Marathon 14:00

A low key event combined with a canicross and half marathon. The route takes you on a lap around the lake and into private grounds before heading out in to nearby fields before heading back to the lake. The route was a bit undulating in places but nice running through the woods....Read full review

Second time I have completed this race, half marathon last year and 10k this year. Entered the canicross and then realised I didn't have a dog!
