Run In The Forest

Race Postponed!

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have had to postpone the event. We have provisionally secured September 27th 2020. We have the venue confirmed, race licence application approved (provisionally and this could change depending on government guidance) and provisional medical cover agreed. All entries received so far are valid for the new date. Once the date is confirmed there will be transfers available for those that can’t attend the new date. Should we be unable to have the race on this new date for any reason, we’ll defer all entries to our 2021 race date (yet to be agreed but provisionally April 18th 2021), again, with transfers available. The most up to date info will be on our Facebook page under events.

Due to reduced working with the outbreak, we don’t know how long things will take to confirm, e.g approving the race licence, that department may not be staffed currently. Please bear with us and we will endeavor to hold the event as soon as is possible and give as much notice as possible. We’ll be as flexible as we can with entrants to transfer entries etc.

Our annual Run in the Forest race will be held on April 18th 2020 at Conkers Waterside Centre, Rawdon Road (B586), Moira, DE12 6GA.

Entrants Information

Held over a 5 mile course almost entirely off road and taking in some of the fine scenery the National Forest has to offer. The surface comprises hard packed trails and canal tow paths with some sections of tarmac.

While the event is part of the Burton & District Summer League it is very much an open race with anyone aged 15 or over on race day eligible for entry.

There will also be a 1 mile fun run at 10am before the main race takes place and will cost £2 to enter. Any runners under 9 will need to be accompanied by an adult.

The main race start time is 10:45am costing £8 for affiliated runners and £10 for unaffiliated runners. For all runners entering the main race on the day it will be £2 more than above.
