High octane thrills are promised for the Running Festival at Goodwood following a successful launch at the National Running Show on Saturday, 20 January. Early bird discount entry fees apply until the end of February for this 5,000 capacity addition to the road racing calendar.
UK Run Events, powered by UKRunChat and Breathe Unity, are behind The Running Festival at Goodwood, a thrilling new event for runners at the historic Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit.
The inaugural event will take place on Sunday, 14 October and 5,000 runners are anticipated to toe the iconic start line. Goodwood is a spectacular estate in the heart of West Sussex and home to the world-famous Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and Qatar Goodwood Festival.
