1610 Woodland Wander and Doggy Dash - 15th March 2020
Come and have a go at the Hestercombe Woodland Wander – 5km and 2km fun runs on Sunday 15th March at 9.30am (registration from 8.30am). No times, no pressure – it’s all about getting active and having fun, and is suitable for all ages and abilities, and dogs can run alongside their owners on a lead. This event is held in partnership with 1610.
To keep everyone safe, in this year’s event we will separate those who are running without pets from the dog lovers and will have 2 start times – 9.30am for people running with their dogs and 10.00am for everyone else.
There will be medals at the finish line plus a FREE special gift, tasty treats and water for the doggies. The 5k is perfect for people thinking about entering a 10k run but looking for something smaller to build their confidence. For those that prefer a slower pace, try our 2k fun run or walk the route.
This is a great event for all the family and an opportunity to make the most of the peaceful woodland and lake views.
5k Fun Run/Walk
The 5k route through the beautiful woodland surroundings of Hestercombe is mostly cross country. Some of the hills are a little challenging but it’s all good fun, and perfect for people thinking about entering a 10k 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 (bring the dog) – a great opportunity to make the most of the peaceful woodland and lake views. Any children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times as the route is not all located within the Hestercombe grounds.
2k Fun Run/Walk
The 2k Fun Run is brilliant for kids and families and those who want to have fun and have a go! We would advise any children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Keep warm while you wait in the Stables Cafe which will be open for cakes and hot drinks.
