Bedgebury National Pinetum & Forest, Bedgebury Road, Goudhurst, Kent, TN17 2SJ
Join us for an unforgettable race between the pines and beneath the majestic canopy of Bedgebury Forest. It's a trail race that will ignite your racer's heart and the team can't wait to welcome you to the start line.
This is a Nice Work race
This means that it is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.
A stupendous trail race open to runners of all abilities, from novices to experienced athletes. Great for those breaking into trail running and veterans alike, the course meanders through the narrow trails of this beautiful woodland. Come and enjoy the epic scenery, join the race-day buzz and delight in every twist and turn of the trail.
The course uses an undulating route around the trails and paths within Bedgebury Forest. Starting and finishing within the Pinetum, the route should be quiet with no vehicle traffic, although there will be other forest users and bicycles crossing the routes, so runners should be alert to other users. You should be prepared for mud, especially if the weather leading up to race-day has been inclement. But, you should expect finishline exhilaration and delight... this race is an absolute corker!
And, for our junior racers...
... is a BRAND NEW family event in the form of a junior race offering!
This 2km race will chip timed and will give our aspiring junior racers a chance to take part in their very own, dedicated event. The race will take place before the main race, on the trails and paths around Bedgebury and will be fully marshalled.
Because of the site location at Bedgebury, this will be a relatively challenging junior race but we look forward to cheering our young runners as they cross the finish line! The first boy and girl will receive a trophy.
Parents are responsible for collecting their children at the finish line. If parents are accompanying their children on this race then no additional entry is required. However, participating parents will not receive a chip time or medal. We hope that you will join us in supporting our young runners with uproarious cheers!
