Hard as Snails

Next Race: 25/05/2022 + 2 others

Shalford Park, Shalford Road, GUILDFORD. GU4 8BL

Voted one of the best events in the UK by runners in the independent RaceCheck Awards in 2019, you’ve found an excuse to sneak an extra race into your calendar – only this time it won’t affect your weekend plans!

 

Come and experience our multi-award-winning midweek trail run series, which we’re told is best celebrated with a sunset drink from the Horsebox Bar!

 

A popular choice for those who like to squeeze an extra run in after work, this sell-out event offers challenging 5K & 10K trail runs, with an additional 15K in June/July & 2K run for the kids in June.

 

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

 

The 2K Fun Run will finish prior to the start of the main categories. Children must be aged 6 or over to participate. Children under 11 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

 

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.
