The Book Day Challenge

Race cancellation email can be read here...

Please note that due to the adverse weather conditions we have unfortunately taken the difficult decision to cancel this event.

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, very quiet and peaceful despite being quite close to civilisation! Having only been here mid-week up till now the nice folk at the Forestry Commission are letting us come along for a weekend!

We're not hitting the Book Day day exactly, but we're really close. I've always loved books and I know folk like a bit of fancy dress, so that is very much encouraged, though absolutely not compulsory, but if you're looking for an excuse to dress up as one of your favourite characters then here is a reason!

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!

For the bling collectors amongst us this is our most colourful medal yet, 23 colours I think this has and 140mm square... a colourful chunk of metal if ever there was one!

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!
