Exploring Ashtead Common. 'Britain's 'greenest' race'
The Ashtead 10k is organised by the Ashtead Running Group. Ashtead Common is maintained by the Corporation of the City of London. The course involves a route through the varied woodland habitats of the Common, including open areas of previously-burnt woodland and regrowth, coppiced areas, and the ancient oaks for which the common is famous. The route is undulating, with total ascent and descent of not more than around 250m. The route follows wide grassy footpaths, bridleways and tracks through the forest, and in its mid-section features views over farmland to Malden Rushett and beyond.
This event is part of Ashtead.
