The event first started in the 1930s and has gathered pace every year and now lots of people look forward to the challenge of racing either a runner or a cyclist on the off road and very muddy terrain of Friday Woods - a military training ground. It's a challenging 3 lap course, but loved by all.
The junior race which starts at 10.20 am has now been introduced, these guys will do a shorter distance, a 2 lap route and covering approx. 1 mile. The junior race is free and sign ups are on the day, please arrive early to do so. Under 17's will do 2 laps of the main event route and will start with the main race at 11:00 am. All seniors, male and female, will cover 3 laps and approx. 3.5 miles. Please bear in mind before you sign up for this event, it's a mass start event and although we try and keep it as safe as possible, sometimes there is a collision with the runners and cyclists and it is a very muddy and uneven route with ditches and water crossings. Trail trainers are always recommended and you are entering this event at your own risk.
