“Fantastic event - what a challenge!! Very well organised, great signage and very motivational marshalling. And the best medals, by far!”

Nick, Cary Canter 10k Participant

Final Results

The Cary Canter (or should that be Cary Crippler) is the most gruelling of all our race series events. Its tough, muddy and has a multi terrain course with stunning country views.  It has a challenging hilly route taking in breath taking views of Glastonbury Tor, King Alfred’s Tower and Bruton Lodge Hill Fort. Regular participants love this event for its mud, hills and rough terrain.

The race starts and finishes at Caryford Fitness and Leisure Centre, where you will have use of the changing rooms, showers and toilets. Runners of all abilities (including walkers) are welcome. 

The Cary Canter is kindly sponsored by: Um Bongo and Bengove Market Garden
