The Gunpowder Run is a superb race offering from the Battle Bonfire Boyes. It's called the Gunpowder run because Battle is famous for gunpowder making, known for producing the “finest Gunpowder in Europe”. You will be running across the field that played a major part in this historic industry, including through Powdermill Woods and adjacent to Powdermill Lane.
