FOXTRAIL WINTER RUNNING SERIES,
RACE ONE 13K RUN
Race one is the iconic 13km of the FoxTrail series, kicking off the races at FoxTrail HQ. The 13K route has become a classic in the FoxTrail series and as the first race of the winter its a chance to catch up with FoxTrail friends of years gone by.
The route winds through woodland and across farm trails, incorporating the John Muir Way in the beautiful John Muir Country Park. You can look forward to a mix of terrains on a relatively flat and fast course, the perfect start to the 6 race series. This will also be the final race in the series – it’s so good we run it twice!
The first of our 5K race series will also be taking place on the day so why not encourage friends and family to sign up and get involved with the FoxTrail Family.
Please note that there will be a mixture of different and challenging terrain on the route and conditions will be muddy, soft and very slippy in areas. We would recommend using trail running shoes for the race.
