BACKGROUND

This beautiful route takes in the local canal and waterways, reservoirs as well as Britain's oldest post windmill on a great 10 mile trail run. You will run through fields, over hills and alongside the water, all the time with stunning views up towards the Chilterns or indeed from their very tops. It's a guided run, just like all of our events, so you don't have to worry about finding your way. All our experienced local Run Leaders will be able to give you trail running tips along the way as well as giving you information about the rich history of the area you will be running through.

You will be grouped by ability and we will be starting and finishing at Musette Cafe in Aldbury which has great road and rail access.
