The Belchamps Trails

23 Aug 2020

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

The Belchamps Trails are narative trail races (there are no marshals or arrows, you follow written instructions) following a circular route arround the villages near both Hedingham and Clare Castles. The route is 90% off road on a wide variety of terrain. For your safety you will be expected to run with a mobile of the same number that you have left with registration.

The race starts and finishes at The Belchamps St Paul's Community House. There will be well stocked checkpoints on the 1/2 and Full Marathon routes, 3 for the Marathon, 2 for the Half. This event like all of our trail races will be cupless.  If you need a cup, our race cups are £3 available either on the day or from our website. When you reach the finish you will recieve a well earned medal.

Start time: Wave 1 = 7.45 - 8.30

                   Wave 2 = 8.35 - 9.20

                   Wave 3 = 9.25 - 10.10

To comply with our COVID guidelines we will have wave starts. Each wave is for 30 runners, spread over the 3 distances. No groups of more than 6 may start together, otherwise you will start at 30sec intervals.  As you will already have your numbers and instructions there will be no registration. Passing through the start will let us know your here. Once you are ready to start, you come to the start line and give your number and off you go. Do not try to start in an earlier wave as this will put us in breach of the 30 people COVID limit. If you are late for your wave you will have to wait until after 10.10am
