Join us for the first ever marathon race to be held at Wendover Woods in Buckinghamshire.
If you are looking for something a little bit different to the big city, mass participation marathons, then this could be the event for you! You will be running on beautiful off-road forest trails, rewarded with stunning scenery as you clock the miles.
Brought to you by the same team that manages the Wendover Woods Festivals of Running in the Spring and Autumn, the route will be 2 laps along a challenging undulating course.
Situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Chiltern Hills, Wendover Woods is a perfect location for a marathon race. There is plenty of parking, a new Cafe (opened in August 2019) and lots to do for your supporters! Bring the family to enjoy Go Ape Tree Top Adventure, adventure play areas, Gruffalo Trail, bike trails and it's dog friendly!

The Course The course will be a lapped around the trails and paths within Wendover Woods. 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.
First Aid St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by our chip timing team. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre, but please allow time for manual processing. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

"I'm just writing to say how much I enjoyed the event yesterday. It wasn't too big a crowd and the course route was wonderful. I normally struggle on the hills but on this occasion the views were a great distraction to keep my mind off the gradient.
please pass on my thanks to the marshalls (those jelly babies at the water stops were most welcome) and everybody who helped to make this such an excellent event.
I'm definitely going to do this race again in 2020."
