The race takes place entirely within the grounds of Trent Country Park. It is a beautiful location with plenty of great views, woodland walks and fun running. This is an annual event organised by Trent Park Running Club and attracts a full range of runners from the fast elite, first-timers to fun runners. Many competitors return year after year. The course has everything, taking in grass and path, woods and open fields, a few hills and some fast roadway, but all within the park. We have been frequently told that our annual and popular race is well organised with lots of helpful and encouraging marshals and a useful goody bag! There is easy access via Piccadilly Line (Cockfosters) and the M25 J24.
A commemorative More Mile technical T-shirt, a goody bag and water will be presented to all finishers. There is a comprehensive prize list (details below), there will be spot prizes, chip timing and the results will be available online only. There is free car parking, toilet facilities, water stations, baggage and changing facilities. Trent Country Park has two cafes and a children's play area. The race has been highly commended by Runners World for the value of the goody bag and the quality of the T-shirt.
Entry is only £15.00 (£17.00 for runners who are not members of a registered running club). Entries may be available on the day subject to the race limit of 650. Entry on the day will cost £20 but we advise you not to leave it until late as the race has reached the limit in the past.
Entrants must be 17 or older on the day of the race.
The race starts promptly at 10.30 am. All competitors will collect their race numbers and timing chips at the registration desk on the day.

The coronavirus has caused a lot of sporting events and activities to either be postponed or cancelled. In these uncertain times, it is too early to say what will happen to the Triffic Trail but it is under constant review and we will be guided by Government measures. We are still planning to hold the run on Sunday 21st June as it might be the perfect time to celebrate getting back to normal activity. However, should we need to postpone or cancel we wanted you to know that we will offer all entrants a full refund. If you have made a charitable donation then this will be sent to your chosen charity.
We hope that this reassures you that you will not lose out by entering our event.
We hope that you all keep well and stay safe.
