Due to the current Covid 19 virus crisis, we have had no alternative but to postpone the run to later in the year. As soon as a new date is known, we will publicise it here and on social media. We look forward to welcoming everyone to Checkendon then.

10am: Children’s Races (11 and under: 1.8km, 8 & under: 1km, 5 & under: 100m)

11am: 10k race

11.15am: 5k race

The Checkendon Run is a multi-terrain event designed to take your breath away in more ways than one with stunning scenery and a very challenging final hill. Enjoy running along beautiful beech wood tracks and quiet country lanes; a true runner’s paradise.

The grown ups don’t get to have all the fun though, as we have very popular children’s races and a family friendly event village. With sausages and burgers from our award winning farm shop Blue Tin, homemade cakes, a bouncy castle and face painting the Checkendon Run is a great day out for all the family.

  • Commemorative medal for all participants
  • Trophies for first placed male and female in the 5k and 10k races
  • Certificates for first three girls and boys in each children’s race
  • Race technical t-shirt available to pre-order
  • All races are chip timed (except the toddler dash) with live results available in the race village

Checkendon Run

Well, it has been a while since we updated you about the Run, but like everyone else we've been hunkering down and just trying to get on with "it".

Things have been so uncertain and unpredictable that we have decided to postpone the #CheckendonRun for another year. Hopefully by 2022 mass gatherings will be normal again, and we can look forward to getting together for a great race around our beautiful #Chiltern countryside.

Until then, keep safe and keep #running!

Checkendon Run

We haven't forgotten about all our runners and sponsors, but this Covid thing has turned out rather longer-term than we expected.

Keep on training - the ground is nice and soft! - and we'll see you next year.
