Bolt Strikes Twice

action from Bradenham Bolt

The Bradenham Bolt, the National Trust’s 10k trail run event in the Chiltern Hills near High Wycombe, is back by public demand on 21 September 2014. Around 150 runners took part in last year’s inaugural event, described by one participant as “brutal, but brilliant”.

The National Trust’s Chilterns Countryside rangers have created a challenging but fun-packed 10k trail through the historic Chilterns landscape. 

Main organiser Matt Shrimpton said: “The Bradenham Bolt was a great success last year. It’s designed for outdoor enthusiasts by outdoor enthusiasts.

“The setting for the Bradenham Bolt is a mix of tall beech woodlands, rolling hills and fields but there are also surprises along the way. Runners can expect mud, hills, obstacles and most importantly, a good time.  Bring along friends and family to cheer you on from designated viewing areas.”

The Bradenham Estate is between High Wycombe and Princes Risborough, just 15 minutes from Junction 4 of the M40 by car, and the nearest rail station is Saunderton on the Chiltern Line, one mile from the start line. 

The entry fee - including booking fee - is £15 and all entrants must register online. The minimum age is 16, and the maximum number of runners if 350. Disabled runners are welcome to enter the Bradenham Bolt, please contact the organisers first to discuss any requirements.
