Organiser's Description

Here's the race results and photos for the 2023 Croome Capability Canter. Thank you to everyone for supporting the race, which will raise a good amount to help maintain the National Trust venue:



Voted into the top 10 off-road races by readers of Runners World, the Croome Capability Canter is a 6.5 mile (10kish) multi-terrain race around the scenic Croome Park; designed by renowned 18th century landscape architect Lancelot “Capability” Brown.

You can read more about the race on the BPJ website.

Booking Tips

You can reserve up to 2 entries at a time when the entry system opens - so you can enter partners, friends, etc. If you want to reserve more than this, please request a friend to make the additional entries on a separate computer/phone. Once you start the checkout process, you will have a limited amount of time to complete the checkout before the places are released and you will need to start again. This ensures you don't start entering, only to find out that someone beat you to the last place when you come to pay. Because of this, please ensure that you have all the details of the people you are signing up. This includes name, address, email, phone, date of birth and club affiliation number (if applicable).

  • Cancellation/Swapping Numbers: No refunds will be given once entered, so please decide carefully before entering as the race is off-road and not advisable if you have any injuries. If you're unable to run, please let us know as soon as possible. Your entry fee will go to a good cause.

    If you want to give your place to another person, you can change the name by logging in to your Entry Central account and changing the name to the new runner. If you didn't sign up with an Entry Central account, please fill in the race transfer/withdrawal online form.

    Anyone found running under another name without transferring the name properly prior to race day will be disqualified and banned from future races. This is for health and safety reasons and to ensure the accuracy of results and prize giving. You can read more about the consequences of swapping numbers on the BPJ website. We're unable to change any details within 24 hours of the race as we'll be busy setting up the course and preparing all the registration paperwork, so please ensure you've notified us of any changes before this time, otherwise you will forfeit your place.


  • The profits raised from the race will be donated to the National Trust to help maintain Croome Park with a small percentage of the profits kept back by the club and used towards the club's outreach programme, helping to to get more people with visual impairments participating in running.
