Overview

Complete as many 5k laps as you wish within the 6 hour limit around the beautiful forest.

Maybe you're aiming for your first half marathon, marathon or ultra? Maybe you've got to do a long training run and would like some company (and to be looked after!)? Maybe you want to see just how far you can run in 6 hours? Maybe you just want run in a beautiful forest on a Wednesday?

Whatever your reason for running we'll look after you, encourage you and send you away with your beer, medal and flapjack!

(This is race 1 of a 4 race series)
