Friston Forest charity trail runs

06 Nov 16

The Friston Forest charity trail runs.  Sunday 6th November 2016.

TRA permit number 446.

We have ditched the metric and gone imperial!  

100% off road.  The usual lung busting, heart rate rising climbs at the start, with a few more thrown in later for good measure! 


The Adder = 2 laps = 10 miles.

The Friston Five = 1 lap = 5 miles.




New event running vests are now availble to order.  Take a look on the Facebook page for a image.  Sizes are S to XL in both male and female sizes and a bargain at £12.00 (£1 of which goes to charity).  Males:  We'd advise going for a size larger than you think as they can come up slightly short in the body.


The cut off date for vest orders is 03/10/2016

 Race price varies from £9 to £17; the earlier you enter, the cheaper it is!  Great event to finish your legs off of start an active recovery punish post Beachyhead marathon the week before!

An Adder beany hat is included in the entry fee.

The Adder 10 miler is a mass start at 10:00 hours. 

The Friston Five miler is more relaxed and you can start at anytime from you like from 10:05 to 10:20 (On the morning, just let us know when you want to set off so that we start timing you.  As importantly, please let us know when you are back!) 

Cut off time is 12 noon (i.e. pub opening time!)

Both Walkers and Dog-Runners are welcome to join in the 5 mile event.

Please pick up your race number from registration on the morning.  We will be over by the BBQ area from 9(ish) with registration opening from 09.20 to 09.55.  There will be half a dozen on the day entries available for either distance on a 1st come, 1st served basis.

We advise you to download the mapmyrun.com app and have a nice stroll around in the weeks before the event.  The route is on this app and is available to download.

A route map and narrative will be on our Facebook & website pages and a few paper copies will be available on race morning.

Important note: Due to no vehicular access, there is no water station on the course. You will be provided with a water bottle at registration, please take it with you and do not discard the bottle or any gel wrappers etc in the forest or you’ll be DQd!  There are replacement botttles for the 10 mile turn-around point at the end of lap 1.  And of course there is more water available at the finish line.

The run starts and finishes on grass, which maybe slippery so take care.

Finish: Congratulations, you made it! Stretch, cool down and relax.

Results and Prizes: 1st, 2nd, 3rd for fastest open class males and females over Adder distance.  1st Male & Female for the 5.

Every finisher gets a medal.

(If you find the going too hard in the Adder, you can drop down to the 5 after lap one and still get a time and a medal, but you will not be eligible for a trophy.)

Unfortunately we are unable to accept wheelchair entries due to some of the off-road terrain being very narrow.

Toilets block next to start/finish area. 

St John First Aid in attendance.

£1 per entry will be donated to http://www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/donate-to-us.aspx  The rest goes to cover our costs, insurance etc and the pub bar-tab bill for the marshals.

Any last minute updates will be posted to our Facebook page.
