A Very British Challenge to celebrate Britishness!

We thought it would be fun and nice to celebrate being British! It's something that we as a nation aren't always terribly good at, so here is an excuse to don the red, white and blue, earn some very distinctive British themed bling and enjoy some British treats at the aid station!

We're using, the very pleasant King's Wood which is in the heart of Kent between Ashford and Canterbury. It'll be a moderately challenging trail run as its not a flat place but there are some lovely downhills to make up for the ups. A marathon type distance would have around 1600' of climb. It's really very, very nice here, which is why we're holding a mid-week event in the summer here as its so popular its about the only time of year the Parks people are happy with us being here as otherwise its just too full of people! It's all lovely woodland, decent trails and hills which will make for a very pleasant trail run.

The event will be a six hour timed challenge event. Complete as many loops as you wish within the time limit. Run one lap, a half marathon, a marathon, an ultra!

It's our aim that this event makes an impactful difference to King's Wood in a positive fashion and as such £5 from each entry fee will be donated directly to the Forestry Commission to aid them in maintaining this lovely environment.

Please explore the race and consider joining us!
