  • To continue Fred Ashford's legacy (Fred is fit and well, he has just handed over the reins for this race, the South Bucks 10K and the Langley Series), the majority of the entry fees will be donated to a local charity. The chosen charity will be decided after the event by one of the volunteers, who'll be picked at random.

Start of the race is a short walk from the main Car Park. Please refer to the course map and follow directions from Marshals.

Please allow plenty of time on the day to collect your number from race HQ (Go Ape Shelter). Sorry no refunds.

Please note: All marshals, officials, first aiders, everyone involved with this event is a volunteer. No one is paid to be at this event, they are solely there to make sure you have a safe race, please respect the volunteers. Anything untoward will result in disqualification, the Event Directors decision is final.
