Hestercombe Woodland Wander & Doggy Dash 2020
15 March 2020 - 9:30 am - 12:00 pm| £7 – £21
We shouldnt say it, but this is possibly our favourite event of the year. Runners of all ages from babies to grandads and their four legged friends take to the start line at Hestercombe to kick start the beginning of our annual Race Series.
No times, no pressure, this event is great fun and good for beginners. Its also great for dog lovers as your four legged friends are invited to run alongside you on a lead.
To keep everyone safe, in 2020 we will separate those who are running without pets from the dog lovers and will have 2 start times – 9.30 am for people running with their dogs and 10.00 am for everyone else.
There will be medals at the finish line plus a FREE special gift, tasty treats thanks to The Pet Centre at Monkton Elm Garden Centre and water for the doggies. The 5k is perfect for people thinking about entering a 10k run but looking for something smaller to build their confidence. For those that prefer a slower pace, try our 2k fun run or why not walk the route.
This is a great event for all the family and an opportunity to make the most of the peaceful woodland and lake views.
5k Fun Run/Walk
Our 5k route through the beautiful woodland surroundings of Hestercombe is mostly cross country. Some of the hills are a little challenging but its all good fun. It’s perfect for people thinking about entering a 10k run but looking for something smaller to build their confidence. For those that prefer a slower pace, why not come along and walk the route (bring the dog) – a great opportunity to make the most of the peaceful woodland and lake views. Any children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times as the route is not all located within the Hestercombe grounds.
2k Fun Run/Walk
The 2k Fun Run is brilliant for kids and families and those who want to have fun and have a go! We would advise any children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Keep warm while you wait in the Stables Cafe who will be open selling cakes and hot drinks.
