In 2023, we made some changes to our friendly running festival. We introduced new courses for the Half Marathon and for the 10k and a new mile race just for juniors. (10 to 17)
After low numbers of entries for the full marathon in recent years, we decided to drop that race for 2023. We may bring it back for 2024 if we get enough interest.
We’re expecting a great atmosphere on the day so please come and join us.
