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


Registration for the #checkendonrun on 14 June 2020 is open!

Early birds rates will run from tomorrow until the end of February so while your kit dries out from this weekend's training, log onto www.checkendon-run.org.uk and get your place.

The event is a great race for 5k novices, plodders (that's me!), PB seekers, runners in training for marathons and iron men (and iron women).

All the details, including of our popular children's races, are on the website but just shout if we can help with any questions.

(some of our link titles give the wrong date. The actual date for 2020 is 14 June!)
