Stowe Winter Trail Series 2021

17th January,  21st February, 14th March


Trail running allows you to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether you have just started running or are an experienced runner, this series of trail runs has been designed for you. The Stowe WInter Trail Runs are based around Stowe landscape gardens in Buckinghamshire. Stowe has become widely renowned for its magnificent gardens created by Lord Cobham and the history of the gardens goes back to 1690. The trail starts and finishes at the visitor centre at the New Inn. This is a Sunday morning format so that you can get out on the trail just after sun rise and enjoy the beautiful gardens at Stowe.  The trail takes place within the gardens.

The course runs from the visitor centre down to the entrance to the landscape gardens. It will then take you around the gardens and you will run past many of the famous landmarks including the Temple of Friendship, the Temple of British Worthies and over the Palladian Bridge. After returning back past the 11 Acre Lake the trail will take you back towards the visitor centre.

Enjoy the mix of paths, grass and gravel tracks. It is a safe undulating route and you can enter the 6km or 12km course. The course will be clearly marked. You will need to take caution throughout and pay attention to marshals when necessary. We would normally encourage you to bring family and friends along, but of course during this period you will have to rely on the events team to cheer you along!

Of course we had to review the format and the arrangements to keep us all safe in these strange times. We have played particular attention to the Government COVID-19 guidelines and support. This will be a COVID-19 secure event using a format that has already been tried and tested with our event partners.

The race briefing will be emailed to you in advance and will clearly describe the format of the event, arrangements on the day and your responsibilities. There will be a rolling start with participants setting off every 10 seconds and you will be able to book your preferred block start time.
