Next Race: 31/03/2024
Chasewater Country Park, Pool Lane, Burntwood, Staffordshire, WS8 7NL
Treat yourself to an Easter dash around the beautiful Chasewater Resevoir for a 10k (or 5k!) racing gem!
This is a Nice Work race
This means that it is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.
The first thing you need to know about the Chasewater Easter Egg races is that we fully support the fun! Some of our runners choose to dress up as their favourite Easter character and whilst it's by no means mandatory, it does create a wondeful atmosphere for this Spring race! Runners can take part in the either a 10k or 5k race but both are filled with delight! We also have a children's 600m race, so it is a great way to get all the family involved in this holiday weekend.
This race uses the undulating paths and trails around Chasewater Reservoir. The race will start just outside the Innovation Centre and after a short loop around the centre, runners will head clockwise around the reservoir and cover two laps for 10k and one lap for the 5k. Due to the multi terrain nature of the event, we are unable to get a certificate of course accuracy, but the route is as close to 10k/5k that GPS technology will allow.
You can view the route map here. You'll be able to download the route in different formats including GPX.

Race HQ: The Innovation Centre, just off the A5. The Race HQ is located close to the Innovation Centre at Chasewater Country Park, just off the A5. You can cross the footbridge to the event but we would recommend arriving by car.
The Chasewater Easter Egg 10k & 5k takes place at Chasewater Country Park and is accessible by car and, of course, by bicycle and on foot. Parking is located at the site, so please follow the car park marshal instructions.
The Innovation Centre is located just off the A5 and is signposted onto Pool Road. Do not try and enter the park via the A5195 as this route is a single lane track blocked by a barrier at the end, which we do not have access to and turning is extremely difficult!
The nearest railway station is located at Cannock, but you will then need to get a taxi to the event.
