The run takes a scenic route around the trails and paths of Blenheim Palace, taking you past the Palace and over the Grand Bridge, before a spectacular lakeside section. Entry to the race includes entry to the grounds, designed by Capability Brown and described as “the finest view in England”.
The Junior race, open to under 15s, starts before the main 7k and makes the event a great family day out. Race entry entitles you to entry to the palace grounds, so after the race take your time to enjoy the surroundings, or visit the Palace (not included).
The 7k course is suitable for all ages and abilities. It offers a challenging run for the more experienced, and beautiful surroundings for the beginner or anyone who wants to take a more leisurely pace.
The wheelchair and buggy event will differ slightly and take place over a 4 mile course following the trails around the grounds of Blenheim Palace. And this is a real challenge.
All competitors receive a medal, and there are prizes for the first man and woman, first man over 40, 50, and 60 and first woman over 35, 45, and 55, as well as the first girl and boy under 15.
There will also be a team prizes. Enter the name of your team, and the top 3 times will be calculated.
The schools challenge trophy will be awarded in the same way.
For the junior race, there are prizes for the first girl and boy, and first girl and boy under 15, 12, and 9.
