The Two Castles Trail (Marathon & Half Marathon) (2023)

07 May 2023

Organiser's Description

The Two Castles 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 both routes, 3 for the Marathon, 2 for the Half. This event like all of our trail races will be cupless. 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 and hot food.

The race is run under permit from The Trail Running Association (permit number TBC).

Start time: 8.30am Marathon 9.00 Half Marathon

Bags will be able to  be left in the hall, there will be someone there at all times.

Timing will be from the gun.  You will have a timing chip that will need to be scanned at each checkpoint and the finish. Please ensure your number is clearly visible on your front. Also be prepared to shout your number at the finish if requested.  We are aiming to post the results on the web later the same day.

Race rules
