ABOUT THE EVENT
Welcome to the second ever Henham Park Festival of Running; an inclusive festival of fitness and health set in a beautiful natural setting. The event is about far more than just running; with lots of activities for people of all ages to do, an amazing atmosphere, food, drinks and music. As well as beautiful courses around the Henham Park estate, which is closed to the public most of the year, there's plenty to keep everyone entertained long after you've completed your run.
There are four races to take part in during the day this year, with a 10k and 5k chip-timed running distance as well as a 1k family fun run, which takes place in the afternoon after the longer distances have been completed.
New for 2020 is our Breakfast Run, whereby early-bird runners start just as the mist fades over the lake and enjoy a delicious breakfast once they've finished. This can be pre-booked when you register for the run.
Unlike other races, the Henham Park Festival of Running encourages participants to do more than just go the distance. Yoga classes, sports massage, live music from local musicians, sustainability activities, football, various food stands and a bar will keep everyone entertained throughout the day. We'll be announcing plenty of exciting new activities in the lead up to the event so keep an eye on our social media for updates.
Henham Park was chosen for this race because of the natural beauty all around the grounds. The trails are ideal running surfaces and have been marked off and chosen for their varied terrains.
