Overview Race 1

Good Run Guide brings you another Wednesday evening trail race series. The first two races are 5 miles each and the third is approx 8 miles long and loosely based on one of our recommended running routes through scenic and sometimes challenging parts of Wimbledon Common. They start at the iconic windmill and offer a mixture of adventure, fun and challenge all set within the lovely Wimbledon Common and completely traffic free. However conveniently there is a large free car park at the start.

Every finisher receives a mug, chocolate bar and fruit. There are series and individual medals/prizes for male female and age category winners.

About The Course

The first race of the series is 5 miles long, this race follows an exciting and challenging course. Features include tackling the boggy Rifle Butts, running alongside bubbling Beverly Brook, and climbing the tricky 'Toast Rack'. The run is designed so that it will be much tougher than your average 5K but at the same time accessible to runners of all standards. If you thought Wimbledon Common was boring, prepare to be surprised.

These are some of the views/challenges along the route:

Around Queensmere

Along Beverley Brook


And up the 'Toast Rack'
