Castle to Castle
This will be a social run, not a race, with lots of opportunities to stop and take photographs. We recommend that you have a good level of fitness and are able to run for 22miles/35km at approximately 11 min/miles.
The route takes in a variety of terrain from forests, fields, tracks and trails. There is a some elevation and we keep the road running kept to a minimum.
We encourage you to lift share, where possible (within COVID-19 guidelines), making it easy to leave a car in Framlingham and drive to the start. There are car parks available at both the finish and the start and we will provide locations in the pre-run instructions.
Alternatively, Framlingham provides a great day out for any family or friends that wish to meet you there and there are local taxis available.
We have a list of recommended kit available here – https://trailruns.co.uk/recommended-kit/
We would recommend carrying at least 1 litre of water for this run as we’ll be out on the trails for a couple of hours at a time before replenishing supplies.
We will send an email during the week before the run with all of the information that you need. If you haven’t received any information two days before the run, please contact us.
The day gets underway at 8:30am, meeting at Orford Castle, where you’ll get an introduction to the adventure, what to expect and a brief of the route and terrain.
You’ll head out onto the trails with our Run Leaders who will guide you on our trail run. Enjoy the Suffolk trails and use the opportunity to ask anything trail running. It will be an easy pace with stops along the way – a good chance to take in the scenery (don’t forget your camera) and talk kit, technique, trail races and everything else in between!
Our adventure finishes in Framlingham where we can re-live the adventure at one of the local pubs over a beer or coffee.
