Event Description

DIRT RUN IRCHESTER COUNTRY PARK

A WINTER TRAIL RUNNING TREAT – UPHILL!

Formerly called The Wellingborough Multi Terrain Series, we are pleased to offer this two round multi terrain run at Irchester Country Park with a choice of 3 distances: 5, 10 or 15K.  This year we are back to the uphill version, running the event in the opposite direction to 2023

Whether you’re looking for a multi terrain fun run, take your parkrun off road, want to practice the run leg of your triathlon, or run a serious race in some stunning surrounds, then the varied terrain of the Jurassic Irchester Country Park in Northamptonshire is ideal. It doesn’t matter what ability level you are as you have three distance options . The course for all 3 distances is the same – with the 5km runners completing 1 lap, the 10km runners 2 laps, and the 15km runners 3 laps with everybody starting at the same time.

If you fancy a change from your parkrun, trying trail running, a step up from your usual 10k run or if you like things a little more…well dirty!

PARKING

There is parking at the country park, please check their website for current charges and bring some change! 

COURSE

One, Two, or Three lap run, in the varied terrain of the Jurassic Irchester Country Park in Northamptonshire.  The downhill course can be found here. and the uphill course can be found here 

We have added a section to the 10K and 15K course, you will be directed to a trail to your left before the hill on the second and third laps.  Follow the trail and turn right at the bottom, cross the roadway and follow the  edge of the field, go through the trees and turn left back on the main path to the hill – Don’t forget you can go longer or shorter on the day if things change – just speak to the registration team (if you want to go longer you will need cash to pay for the difference in fees.
