Stody Estate Trail Run

Date: 25/02/2024

Location: Stody Estate, Holt

Formally the Hunny Bell Cross Country, the Cecil Amey Stody Estate Trail Run offers the same great 8km route across the picturesque Stody Estate.  Relaunched for 2024 with some exciting new improvements for first time or experienced runners! 

Giving special access to the normally private Stody Estate, this undulating route takes you across some of the best north Norfolk countryside and is a great opportunity to swap the roads for something a little more interesting. 

Maybe try the 4km route for a first step into a trail run or take on the extended 12km run for that extra challenge.  Of course, for all those Hunny Bell Cross Country veterans, the 8km route is here for your enjoyment!

Funds raised from this highly anticipated event will go to Break, a charity which supports care experienced children and young people – ensuring that there is always support for them when they need it, for as long as they need it.  Taking part in this trail run really changes young lives. 

A huge army of volunteers will make this superb event possible. Volunteering is extremely rewarding and you don’t need any previous experience to take part. Email if you could lend a hand.

Fancy taking on this challenge and run for FREE?  We have complimentary places for those wishing to raise funds for Break, all you have to do is pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £50. To apply for a charity place email please log on here and complete the form with your full details here
