Event Description

Are you ready to journey there and back again?

The Tolkien Trail Race is back by VERY popular demand for 2021! We heard there's a few greedy hobitses in need of more gold medals, more awesome adventures... and we're here to give it to you!

  • Included In Entry:
  • The "One Ring" Race Medal
  • Tolkien Trail Buff
  • Professional Race Photography
  • Other goodies!

Follow in J.R.R Tolkien's footsteps and race across through the enchanting woods and epic scenary that inspired the stories of "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit".

Starting on the Avenue of the stunning Stony Hurst College, where Tolkien himself spent time and wrote parts of the Lord of the Rings (and even taught a few lectures). You'll meet a farm track which will bring you to an enchanting woodland. Here you'll descend forest steps and cross an old stone bridge, leading you to the River Ribble and River Hodder. Along the way you'll pass the Crowmwell Bridge (built in 1562) and a quite epic aquaduct (built in 1880). 

Back through woodland, you'll finish in the field behind the Shireburn Arms, having enjoyed the best of what inspired the creation of 'Hobbiton' in the tales. 

Entry covers the cost of running over private lands, insurance and post race goodies. 

If you have any questions about our event at all, please don't hestitate to get in touch
