1610 Woodland Wander and Doggy Dash

Sun, 15th Apr, 2018 at 9:30 am to 11:00 am

Come and have a go at the Hestercombe Woodland Wander and Doggy Dash – 5km and 2km fun runs on Sunday 15th April at 9.30am. No times, no pressure – it’s all about getting active and having fun. This event is held in partnership with 1610.

It’s also great for dog lovers as this year we are opening theis event to your four legged friends who can run alongside you on a lead. There will be medals at the finish line and tasty treats and water for the doggies.

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.Start line
