Whirlow 10K Trail Challenge Sponsored by G.W. Price Sunday 21st August

12 May

A hard and fast race on beautiful trails! Great prizes, a free technical t shirt & medal  for every finisher. Race proceeds go towards the Whirlow Hall Farm Trust Childrens Charity. What more could you want!

This race isn’t for your average road runners out to get a PB! There are hills, awkward trails and possibly mud to encounter! In other words, a proper trail race!

The route has been chosen for its stunning scenery and the varied nature of the route. It’s also chosen to be a ‘challenge’ so it’s certainly undulating, mostly uphill in various gradients for the first half and mainly downhill for the second, with a good last push uphill!

If you are interested in running the race for Whirlow Hall Farm Trust Childrens Charity contact

The race is part of the Dig Deep festival of running to be held at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust in Sheffield.

As well as the Whirlow 10K Trail Challenge race there will be:
