Good Run Guide brings you another Wednesday evening trail race series. The races are 5,5 and approx 8 miles long 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 an area of calm and tranquility that feels miles away from the urban sprawls of South West London. Large free car park at the start.

Each finisher receives a mug, chocolate bar and fruit. There are series and individual medals/prizes.

First Race is on Wednesday Evening 6th May Race 1

Second Race is on Wednesday Evening 3rd June Race 2

Third Race is on Wednesday Evening 1st July Race 3

About The Course

Click the "Route Map" button below to see a map of 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 along the route:

Along Beverley Brook

Well the course is quite dry with a week to go until Race 2 but after what happened last time i'll make no predictions! Teh forcast for the day is a lovely one at the moment.

In case you don't know with two day to go before Race 1 it was bone dry but then a couple of days of rain changed all that...although in my defence it was still solid underfoot rather than deep mud :-)
