10am: Children’s Races (Long, Short and Toddler Dash)

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

Don't you just hate it when you can't find anywhere to park near the start of a race? Well you won't have that problem at the Checkendon Run. We have the luxury of the start / finish area being in a huge field which means you are guaranteed to be able to park about 400m away from the start line!
