Something of a classic on the trail run calendar, the Mapledurham 10 is back for a 7th year. This is our favourite run of the Winter Trail Run Series and the 10km & 10 mile courses will take you through a variety of muddy paths, woodland trails, private estate roads and across fields and up and down a few hills!!!

Complimentary mulled wine & mince pies (vegan friendly) available when you finish.

This year the event will have a few changes to ensure everyone’s safety and that the event is COVID-19 safe. This will include:
  • Staggered start times with small groups of runners starting at timed intervals apart from the next group
  • Faster runners will start first to reduce the likelihood of needing to overtake
  • The event will be limited to fewer participants than in previous years
  • There will be no “baggage” area – parking is within 400m of the start line
  • No on the day entries
  • Race numbers will be posted prior to the event
  • We do not encourage spectators at the event
  • There will be no water stations – you will need to carry your own water for the event

What’s STILL special about the Mapledurham 10 though?
  • An awesome medal individually wrapped for you to collect from the finish shute AND a few days later you’ll get an iTAB engraved with your name and finish time
  • Free race photos
  • Chip Timing
  • Ample Toilets
  • Mulled Wine (vegan friendly) & Mince Pies to every finisher

“Great atmosphere, glorious surroundings, all in all a great race! Favourite of the year!
Instructions were clear from the briefing, course was good, mixture of hills and flat, although it was muddy it wasn’t thick enough to cause any problems, make sure you have the right trainers as it does get slippery on the descents!”

“This was the first time I’ve run the Mapledurham 10 and i can say i will definatly be back next year.
Fantastic course with some nice challanging hills, plenty of mud, great race photos from Peter Cook and an awsome medal for the collection.”

“The Mapledurham 10 has become one of the highlight races of the year. It is well organised, friendly and most importantly set in beautiful surroundings. That said, it is a very challenging course that varies year-on-year depending on the prevailing weather conditions.”
