Back To School For Woodland Test

runners at the Charterhouse Club Trail Run

Organisers of the Charterhouse Club Trail Run are finalising plans for the fourth running of the popular Surrey woodland trail event on Sunday 20 October. The Charterhouse Run has been attracting growing fields with runners enjoy the challenging woodland trail route which takes in picturesque scenery around Charterhouse School. With a 5k, 10k and 15k option, there are distances to suit beginners and experienced runners.

The run begins at Charterhouse Club, continues across the sports field and into the nearby woodland. Marshals will be stationed along the route which is a clearly marked 5k loop. Runners will face some challenges along the way as the undulating trail includes tough uphill climbs and fast downhill sections.

Josie Tidbury, Operations Manager at Charterhouse Club, commented: "The event grows in popularity year-on-year as runners spread the word about the scenic trail. We look forward to welcoming back previous participants and first time entrants. There is always a great atmosphere during the Trail Run as it is an ideal opportunity for runners to get together, compete and have fun."

Barry Shea ran the 10k in 2012 and commented: "I turned up expecting a much easier run but the terrain keeps you on your guard at all times so there is no cruising. The climbs are mostly steep but short so you need time to gather your breath at the top."

Trail Run organisers are encouraging runners to book in advance as there are a limited number of places available for registration on the day. Every entrant will receive a t-shirt and goodie bag, and there will also be a great selection of winner's prizes.
