Trail Mix Challenge - Saturday 18th July - 11-4pm
A different 5km course on the hour, every hour, for five hours. 25km sounds like a lot of running but broken down into five chunks, with rest and time to make sure that you are nourished and hydrated, we think that it is manageable for most runners that have previously completed 5km and 10km races. Medal for all finishers. Minimum age 17 years.

Headlight Hop 10km - Saturday 18th July - 6.30pm
A one lap twilight run featuring seriously rolling hills and beautiful views across the estate.
The route snakes along multi-terrain tracks, across farmland and in and out of forest sections. Medal for all finishers. Minimum age 15 years.

Thump Half - Sunday 17th July - 9am
Using different trails to the Hop, this is a two lap route that will provide a challenge. The route is rolling and every turn rewards you with stunning woodland and country views. Medal for all finishers. Minimum age 17 years.

Quest for the Golden Carrot
If you are up for a serious challenge, then The Quest is for you! Complete all of the above events totalling 56.1km over the 24 hour period. The top 6 males and females (lowest cumulative time) will then qualify for the Carrot Dash. 

Carrot Dash - Sunday 18th July - 11:30am (approx)
This is a 'winner-takes-all' 1 mile race to win one of two exclusive Golden Carrot trophies! To be eligible, you must have completed the full 56.1km (the Trail Mix Challenge, Headlight Hop 10km and the Thump Half) and be one of the 6 fastest males/females across the Quest. Minimum age 17 years.
