Race Description

The Run Rabbit Trail Festival consists of 3 (or 4) separate running challenges that can be done as standalone events or together  – when they form The Quest for the Golden Carrot. 

Trail Mix Challenge – Saturday 15th from 11-4pm
A different 5km course on the hour, every hour, for five hours. 25km sounds like a lot of running but broken down into five chunks, with rest and time to make sure that you are nourished and hydrated, we think that it is manageable for most runners that have previously completed 5km and 10km races. Medal for all finishers. Minimum age 17 years.

Headlight Hop 10km – Saturday 15th at 6.30pm
A one lap twilight run featuring seriously rolling hills and beautiful views across the estate. 

The route snakes along multi-terrain tracks, across farmland and in and out of forest sections. A head torch is recommended, although many runners will finish while there is still good light. Medal for all finishers. Minimum age 15 years.

Thump Half – Sunday 16th at 9am
Using different trails to the Hop, this is a two lap route that will provide a challenge. The route is rolling and every turn rewards you with stunning woodland and country views. Medal for all finishers. Minimum age 17 years.

Quest for the Golden Carrot
If you are up for a serious challenge, then The Quest is for you! Complete all of the above events totalling 56.1km over the 24 hour period. The top 6 males and females (lowest cumulative time) will then qualify for the Carrot Dash. 

Carrot Dash
This is a ‘winner-takes-all’ 1 mile race to win one of two exclusive Golden Carrot trophies! To be eligible, you must have completed the full 56.1km of the Trail Mix Challenge, Headlight Hop 10km and the Thump Half and be one of the 6 fastest males/females across the Quest. Minimum age 17 years.

Free camping and entertainment (guest speakers & live music) on the Saturday evening is included in all entry fees.

10% discount when you enter two events.

Trail Mix Challenge – £30
Headlight Hop – £18
Thump Half – £25
Quest – £65
