One of the best kept secrets for trail runners in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, and Buckinghamshire - and less than an hour from London - the Culden Faw Estate sits on the most picturesque banks of the River Thames.


Run along bridleways and trails - through ancient woodland, farmland, and wildlife conservation areas - to make the most of the natural autumnal beauty on offer.


With the usual Purple Patch approach to small, local events, all paces and levels of experience are welcome; and our friendly marshals will see you round the course safely before you collect your unique medal and other finishers' rewards.


Event merchandise is available for purchase during registration for delivery by the following weekend when ordered by Sunday.


All of our events are organised following government and governing body COVID-19 guidance. We will continue to ensure that we deliver safe and enjoyable events.


Entry on the day will be subject to availability and a £5 surcharge.
