Race Description

TrailMan returns to Eridge Park near Royal Tunbridge Wells for the ultimate event in the Human Race Off Road Series. Eridge Park is not only steeped in history, being the largest open deer park in England and mentioned in the Domesday book, it’s also home to some challenging and varied terrain. Making it the perfect place for a tough, off road race like the TrailMan! In addition to the off road Duathlon, there is a choice between a 6k trail run over a shorter loop and a 13k trail run – still over one loop, just longer, hillier, muddier and all round tougher! Both distances begin with a fast downhill section right out of the gate before crossing the dam at Lake Serene following the same course as the Duathlon and then heading deep into the ancient oak forest for some proper trail action. Following that the Trail Run hits some proper hills including the infamous Big Dipper as it works its way back to the start/finish zone. This is where the 6k finishes, but for the rest it’s out onto trails, single track, firetrack, ups, downs, mud, roots and fun before rounding the iron-age fort on top of Saxonbury Hill and hitting a long, sweeping descent down towards the finish. As with the duathletes, make sure you runners save something for ‘The Wall’, a leg-sapping ramp back up to the line where you’ll likely collapse in a heap on the floor!
