Update (9th Aug 2020)

It is with a heavy heart that we are going to have to cancel Run In The Forest 2020. Our original date was during the height of the pandemic and whilst our postoped date was feasible to hold an event, the new requirements for events are unlikely to be doable to our high standard in the time we have and the guarantees we need from providers are not in place to ensure a safe event.

I’m sure you will all understand the decision which is in line with most other events. It is important to note that no entrant will be out of pocket. All current entrants will be transfered to the next event date. Anyone who cannot attend the next date will be given the chance to transfer their place to another runner. We are not in a position to offer refunds, however this is covered by the ability to transfer your place.

 

Our annual Run in the Forest race will be held on April 18th 2021 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.
