Official Organiser’s Description


Defeat Delamere this September and enjoy the thrill of running through the gorgeous woodland site, over winding gravel paths, pushing yourself through the mixture of inclines dotted around the route.

 There will be a mass group warm up before you take to the starting line. Each distance will set off separately and runners will be called to the start line by an official MC.

The courses are signposted and well marshalled and cover stunning views of the forest.  As this is a trail run, runners can potentially expect mixed terrain, hills, loose surfaces and exposed tree roots – all adding to the thrill of the chase.

You can collect your race pack including race number and timing chip at the registration tent set within the charity village. Registration opens at 8.30am. Please note the mini miler will not be chip timed.

You must be 16 or older for the 10-miler. Those 15 and over can take on the 10k and 14 or over to sign up for the 5k. The mini-miler is open to ages 3 or over, or running buggies.
