Overview

Complete as many (just under) 5k laps as you wish within the 6 hour limit around the beautiful country park. Be warned this route is especially hilly, the marathon distance is as nearly as hilly as Ben Nevis!

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 woodland with a carpet of bluebells?

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