Those not heading north for the Great North Run will find plenty of race action closer to home this weekend. 

In Essex runners will strap on their drinking trousers & tie off their trail shoes to compete in a scramble around the wilds of Wakes Colne at the Chappel Ale Trail. Organisers promise the thrills of trail running with the spills of a beer festival!

On Sunday the Farnham Pilgrim Marathon & Half Marathon take place, runners will discover historic churches, old pubs & refreshing views across the Surrey Hills as they follow in the footsteps of pilgrims.
