Event Description

The Ben Campbell 5k & 10k Trail Run

April 7th 2018  10am – 12:30pm


Around Sutton Bank’s White Horse, Kilburn Woods and Hood Hill


This race has been organised as a non-profit charity event, celebrating the life of Ben Campbell and supporting the UK Sepsis Trust who are committed to increasing public awareness and supporting those affected by Sepsis.

Ben Campbell, a friend of ours, who grew up in Thirsk, tragically died at the age of 36 in Jan 2015, very unexpectedly, from pneumococcal pneumonia.

To celebrate his life we have organised a 5k and 10k trail run at Kilburn woods. We have permission and the blessing from the family to name the event after him and it has now become an annual occasion. This year will mark the 4th time running the event.

Ben loved a challenge and it is for this reason that this idyllic location has been chosen. Not only does it encompass the true beauty of the North Yorkshire countryside but the terrain itself is a challenge to run on, we are sure you will truly enjoy it.

The course is fully way marked and marshalled, both hilly and muddy in places with breath-taking scenery. It presents itself to both seasoned and beginner runners aged 18 years or over with 5k and 10k races starting 15 minutes apart.

There are a limited number of entries available, 50 for the 5k and 200 for the 10k.

Medals will be awarded for the first 3 Males and first 3 Females to complete each race as well as a trophy for the out-right winner of each race.

Parking is available at the Visitor Centre (which is a good walk/jog – you can use this as your warm up), and also in the Car Park opposite the top of the White Horse steps.

This is a small event, so the atmosphere is incredibly friendly, and everyone is extremely supportive. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be invited to join us on some route recces which give you chance to suss out the area and prepare yourself for race day.
