Eastnor Castle  - 1st October 2017 - Muddy trail race with beer and hog roast!

Eastnor Castle is the home of the Land Rover test centre, over 60 miles of trails wind throught the deer park and woodland, which put the vehicles and drivers through the toughest of paces. These man made trenches and troughs exaggerate the natural terrain to give a year round muddy experience, maintained with additional water, these mud pits will be just as lovely in the summer as they would be in the winter!

We will be making the most of the terrain as it lies, picking the muddiest trails the estate has to offer. There will be a few natural obastcles, fallen trees to navigate, gullies to cross and of course, lots of mud to roll  in! Between the mud, there are some good hills, but like all our events, everyone is always most welcome to come and take part.

The Race HQ is set up in the fields adjacent to the castle and we will take the route up and around the castle in the opening and closing sections of the course. It is a stunning building with a gorgeous lake sitting beneath it which makes for an amazing setting for this muddy run.

Runners can add a beer and hog roast to their registration for just £5, to soak up the atmosphere and bask in the muddy glory of the race. Spectators can tuck in too for just £8. Veggie, gluten free and soft drink options are all available to select at point of registration. All finishers will take home a big custom medal, specific to the event and year, as well as helping themselves to our buffet of fresh fruit, jelly beans, jaffa cakes and other tasty treats!

Event Format - Sunday 1st October 2017

In order to keep everyone running we will be starting the event off in waves of 100 runners at a time, setting off at 10min intervals. This enables everyone to naturally spread out and enjoy the course. All waves are open to runners of all abilities so the choice is yours - but remember, the later you start, the muddier you will get! Please see the Event Info page for a provisional start time schedule.
