Are you nervous about entering a Trail Race. The cut off for this race is approximately 2 hours, nobody will get timed out. The course is fully marked. Trail races are more welcoming and definitely more fun than running on roads! This race has everything you would want in a Trail Race. Great views set on lovely trails. We describe the route as undulating :) This race also has great facilities for the whole family. Herrington Country Park has a children's play area, woodland walks and fun trail walks. There is also a great cafe and an ice cream van on the park as well.
