Set in the beautiful grounds of Houghton Hall estate and with grateful permission of The Marquess of Cholmondeley our annual cross country offers a picturesque, fast and formidable course with some 'interesting' features that's very spectator friendly. This is a fully licenced UK Athletics event.

Coming from King’s Lynn or Fakenham follow signs to Houghton Hall off the A148 (PE31 6UE).
On the approach to the white gates you’ll be directed towards the race car park.

On race day!
Please arrive in plenty of time to familiarise yourself with the course and the surroundings.
Race registration is from the horse box (seriously!) where you can collect your race number or enter on the day.

Our course
All of the age group courses start and finish at the same line. They are all off road with a mixture of grass terrain, rocky paths and hidden pits. The Houghton Hall estate keep livestock (which will be looking from a far) so expect there to be more than mud on the ground! Spikes or trail shoes are advised.
There are a number of cattle grids on the estate and are out of bounds to all runners and spectators.
Please respect the Houghton Hall estate by keeping it clean and tidy.

On site facilities
There will be refreshments available on the day, first aid, toilets and a bag drop if required.
Unfortunately we don’t have any changing facilities but the car park is conveniently located very close to the start area.

Medals & goodies
Anyone lucky enough to finish in the top three will be rewarded with a unique Houghton Hall medal.
We'll have water and sweets for all finishers.

Entries are non-refundable and unfortunately cannot be deferred but transfers are available until midnight on 22/10/2022. Login to transfer your entry.
