Upcoming Running Races

We’ve compiled a list of our favourite races in and around Bucks and Berks
We look forward to seeing you there

Rugged Radnage - Sunday 18th november 2018

What to wear

Mapledurham 10km - Sunday 2nd December

The Mapledurham 10 is the first race in the Winter Trail Series. These 10km & 10 Mile courses are our absolute favourites, and take in the gorgeous Mapledurham Estate.

What to wear

Mixed terrain races so a mixed terrain shoe is ideal.
We recommend the Saucony Pereguine, Inov8 Roclite 290 or Hoka Torrent as good options.

Muddy Welly - Sunday 16th December

The Muddy Welly returns in December for a sixth year from the beautiful grounds of Wellington College. This run always sells out early.

As the event takes place away from public roads the 5km run is open to those aged 8 and over - we would ask that they are accompanied by an adult for the run. The minimum age for the 10km is 12, with the 1/2 mile run open to runners of all ages!

Winter Gut Buster 10km - Sunday 30th December

The Gut Buster is a legendary 10km & 10 mile trail run in the Berkshire countryside, taking place between Christmas & New Year each year.

All the things you love about the Gut Buster, will be there again in 2018. The water crossings, Roman Walls, fields, footpaths, and what is undoubtedly the hardest last 400m in British Athletics. The epic mudfest of 2017 will be talked about for years to come...what more excuse do you need to escape the family during the holiday season!

Beaconsfield 5m Trail - Monday 22nd April 2019

What to wear

Danesfield Dash 10km - Sunday 28th April 2019

Danesfield school logoOrganised by Danesfield School, the 'Dash' takes in the undulating trails around the Marlow Common. For those who know the Marlow Half, you might call it the 'shorter, off road version!'

Its ideal for any runner. If you've been in hibernation over the winter, then it might be just the race to get you going for the summer! In addition to the 10km there is also a 1km childrens race.
All proceeds go to Danesfield School.

 

What to wear

Although a lot of the race is off road, it also takes in some country lanes. If it has been wet, you might want to look at a trail shoe. If though the ground is fairly dry, we would suggest wearing your road shoes.

Marlow 5m - Sunday 12th May 2019

One of the most popular races in the area. The almost flat course is ideal for the beginner runner looking for their first 'proper race'. If you've just completed a Couch to 5km programme, then this could be your next challenge!

The race though always attracts some top runners and is normally won in 25mins or under.

What to wear

A 'light' trail shoe is ideal.

Ridge off Roader - Sunday 19th May 2019

What to wear

Burford Bolt - Sunday 7th July 2019

Burford bolt running race logoA lovely mixed terrain event run from Burford school in Marlow Bottom. After a gentle start on the road, the race gets more challenging, with some very challenging climbs.

10km and 5km options and a children's race.

 

What to wear

Either a light trail or road shoe.

Wycombe Half and 10km - Sunday 14th July 2019

2018 sees the 37th running Wycombe Half Marathon. Now starting and finishing at Adams Park, the race takes in a mixture of terrains.

In addition to the Half there is an increasingly popular 10km race.

What to wear

Although the race takes in some trails, a road shoe is still advised.
