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

Burford Bolt - Sunday 7th July 2019
