Bradenham Bolt useful race information

Start Line

On 7 October 2018, 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, cake and bacon sandwiches available at the finish line.

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.
