Come and have a go at the Hestercombe Woodland Wander – 5km and 2km fun runs on Sunday 5th March at 9.30am. No times, no pressure – it’s all about getting active and having fun. This event is held in partnership with 1610.
5km Fun Run/Walk
The 5km route through the beautiful woodland surroundings of Hestercombe is great for beginners and those running for the first time. It’s cross country so some of the hills are a little challenging but it’s all good fun. It’s perfect for people thinking about entering a 10km run but looking for something smaller to build their confidence. For those that prefer a slower pace, why not come along and walk the route – a great opportunity to make the most of the peaceful woodland and lake views. Entry fee is £12 per person.
2km Fun Run/Walk
The 2km Fun Run is brilliant for kids and families and those who want to have fun and have a go. We advise any children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Entry fee is £5 per person or £15 for a family of four.
Dogs on leads are very welcome to run/walk with you
Registration opens at 8.45am in the Bampfylde Hall ready for a 9.30am race start
Medals for all finishers
As both runs are cross country we recommend sturdy trainers
The Stables Café will be open from 8am so runners and spectators can grab a drink or a bite to eat.
