Three events will take place on 30th June 2024:

  • 10km run
  • 5km run
  • Mini-oak Challenge

The 10K run

The undulating route includes a mixture of quiet roads, farm tracks and footpaths.

Starting in the Emmer Green Primary School field, it heads out of Emmer Green via Gravel Hill and follows the quiet lanes towards Kidmore End.

The run then heads across fields bordering Sonning Common before descending down through the golf course and back towards the school field along St Barnabas Road. Watch out for the cheeky hill near the end!
