Next Race: 09/12/2023
Salcey Forest, Wootton Road, Northampton, NN7 2HX
Watch out Dasher, Comet & Blitzen! It's time to fly around the beautiful Salcey Forest trails.
This is a Nice Work race
This means that it is an original Nice Work race, fully hosted and organised by us.
The beautiful, tree-lined paths of Salcey Forest are the venue for this wonderful trail race which is perfect for novices and veterans of the sport alike. Come for the seasonal atmosphere, the festive cheer and finish-line medals! And, don't forget, seasonal fancy dress is most welcome! Get those Santa hats at the ready, folks!
This is a brand new course for 2023 - with no U turns! This brand new race route exploring some parts of the forest never raced in before and is entirely different from the Park Run route! The race will take you through the flat, mixed-terrain trails within the forest. Runners will race along the hard-packed trails and with the route being naturally flat with some satisfying straight sections, it is perfect for anyone trying to run a fast time or for anyone new to trail running. During winter, there is a section of course that may become particularly muddy all adding to the fun of the trail! Please refer to the route map below. The course will be well marshalled and follows a 5k route entirely within Salcey Forest. 10k runners will complete two laps of the course.
Also new to 2023, is a new Junior Fun Run of 1.2km, taking in parts of the 10k course - fancy dress is optional but very much encouraged!
We hope that you will join us in welcoming our aspiring racers to the start line!
