Going out with a bang is our final race of the series. We head back to our roots and to the first race; the iconic 13 at FoxTrail HQ. This race gives you a chance to challenge your PB from race one, your insider knowledge of the course will tell you when to keep some in the tank and when to give everything you’ve got!

The course meanders through stunning woodland and farm tracks, incorporating the John Muir Way in the beautiful John Muir Country Park. Be prepared once again for a mix of terrain over a fairly flat course, and be proud crossing the finish line a FoxTrail series runner. Whether you’re challenging  your first 13km time, or this is your first FoxTrail Event, this is one to give your all!

The fourth and final 5km race will also take place on the 3rd, with both series finishing it’ll be that time of year again…the announcement of series winners! Prize giving will take place as usual for the 13km, but will also be followed by the overall series winners.
