Bradenham Bolt useful race information
On 8 October 2017, the Bradenham Bolt will take you through tall beech woodlands and rolling fields in beautiful Chilterns countryside. Expect mud, hills, obstacles but most importantly, a good time. Bring along friends and family to cheer you on. There's tea and cake, bacon sandwiches and even a fun dog show to enter on the day.
Every stride you take on the Bradenham Bolt helps us make great strides in restoring the chalk grassland on the Bradenham estate. And every friend you bring along for the run or the fun on the day will help us to look after the Chilterns Countryside.
