About this event
Love Running! Then join us at our very first Trent Park 5k and 10k run and be part of a superb event. Super friendly, fun and a great course.
Get together with friends, family or colleagues and join us for what could become a regular featured event within Trent Park.
The event hub is just past GoApe and the postcode we have for the park is EN4 0DZ. Carparking and toilets are situated onsite.
The course is multi-terrain and a beautiful run through the woods and around the parkland. Remember its all good fun and you can walk, jog or run!! Please note the course may be altered prior to the event and if so we will inform you of this.
Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to abide by Trent Park Policy. However this will not affect your time as our race timing system will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be on the Park. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided. Be aware that there are deer in the Park and they occasionally cross the walking paths and roads.
Results will be displayed on our race timing screen so after crossing the finish line you can check out your time.
Drinks and snacks will be available at the finish line.
