Its also great for dog lovers as this year we are opening this event to your four legged friends who can run alongside you on a lead. There will be medals at the finish line and tasty treats and water for the doggies. 

The 5k is perfect for people thinking about entering a 10k run but looking for something smaller to build their confidence . For those that prefer a slower pace, try our 2k fun run or why not walk the route. This is a great event for families and an opportunity to make the most of the peaceful woodland and lake views.

5k Fun Run/Walk

Our 5k route through the beautiful woodland surroundings of Hestercombe is mostly cross country. Some of the hills are a little challenging but all good fun. Its perfect for people thinking about entering a 10k run but looking for something smaller to build their confidence. For those that prefer a slower pace, why not come along and walk the route (bring the dog) - a great opportunity to make the most of the peaceful woodland and lake views.  

2k Fun Run/Walk

The 2k Fun Run is brilliant for kids and families and those who want to have fun and have a go!  We would advise any children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
