50 Mile



Age 20 & over

  • 50 miles trail running


Salcey Forest has hosted many Big Bear events over the years and we loved taking you to other parts of the Forest in 2022 and will be doing it again in 2023! You’ll go to tracks away from the main visitor centre along some single track trail, wide open forest floor and crushed stone pathways. You'll be supported by our amazing team of volunteers as you run through this ancient woodland.

This event is part of Salcey 50.
