The Eridge Park 10 Trail Challenge is back for 2021, on Sunday 26th September at 10.30am
Eridge Park, Eridge Green, near Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN3 9JT
Tunbridge Wells Harriers are delighted that the Eridge Park 10 Trail Challenge is returning for 2021, after an enforced hiatus in 2020. The event has regularly been voted in the top races in the UK.
The race is reported as "always a favourite of off road veterans, a few tweaks to the route this year have seen this race rocket to the top of the charts. The route is traffic-free, the views are varied but uniformly captivating, and runners can't get enough of the steep, narrow climbs and copious quantities of mud."
This event gives the unique opportunity to run through the estate which is mostly private.
Prizes will be awarded to the first three finishers, male and female; first veteran male in M40, M50, M60 and M70; first veteran female in F35, F45, F55; plus prizes for the first three male and female teams.
Entry Fee: £18 Attached / £20 Unattached
Minimum age: 17 years
Here's what some of the runners who have taken part in the event before have said:
"This is what Sunday mornings were made for. Excellent race in every department."
"Unmissable, a great experience in every respect."
"Great muddy fun, tie your laces tight and enjoy."
"My new favourite race !"
This is a privileged and unique chance to run on a traffic-free course over private land through an historic deer park and ancient woodland.With stunning views, your run will take in country estate former carriageways, three beautiful lakes, a Saxon hill fort topped with a Victorian folly and a number if natural springs. The hilly 10 mile (approximately!) one lap course is on tracks, grass and woodland trails — normally delightfully muddy in places - and some sections are steep, rutted and narrow.
