Wendover 2023 Festival of Running: 10 mile, 50km, 50 mile & 100 mile

For 2023, our Wendover events will be back but across one weekend, as part of a Festival of Running.

The date will be 7th - 9th July 2023 and the line up will be as follows:

Wendover Woods 100 mile is back for a third edition. With a start time of 1000 on Friday 7th July and a cut off of 32 hours, it will kick start the weekend of festivities.

Wendover Woods 50 will start at 0930 on Saturday 8th July. Moving from November into the summer will change up the challenge of this event, which will still act as one of our four, 50 Mile Grand Slam races. The cut off remains at 15 hours.

Wendover Woods Night 50km will start at 2100 on Saturday 8th July, with a cut off of 9 and a half hours. It will bring the weekend to a close at 0630 on Sunday morning.

Wendover Woods 10 mile will be a new event for 2023 and an opportunity to involve a much broader group of runners. 

Wendover Woods kids race will be our second kids event and will obviously be the highlight of the weekend!

Around the races, runners, friends and family will be welcome to camp and hang out with the wider community as we have use of our regular field but also the adjacent field, expanding out the races into a full weekend of action. 

The site will be open from 0800 Friday until midday on Sunday.

There will be opportunities to catch speakers/ talks. Try out demo kit from some of leading in store brands and sponsors. As well as access food/ drink on site across the weekend.
