The basics

There’s no need to book - simply show up on the day. Your registration point is at Heath Barn in Comer Woods. It's a just a few minutes walk from the car park. We advise you to arrive between 8:30 to 8:45am, in plenty of time for the run which starts at 9am.

Under 16's must be accompanied. Sorry, no under 14's.

Dogs on a short lead or canicross harness are welcome. Owners are responsible for controlling their dog and ensuring that there is no inconvenience to other runners. One dog per runner please.

What to bring and wear

If timing is important to you, bring your own device and monitor your time, every time you take part.

Please arrive dressed and ready for the event. Normal running shoes or trail shoes are suitable. No studs are required on your trail shoes.

If you're running by yourself, why not get one of our new Trust10 ICE tags to store your emergency details?

The toilets will be open from 8.30am.

Accessibility

The route is mixed surface and uneven under foot in places. There are some steep gradients to tackle. Please be respectful of other walkers, runners and cyclists using the route.

Car parking

Parking in Comer Woods is free for National Trust members. A small charge applies to non-members. Please scan your membership card in the machine to receive your free ticket. Funds raised in the car park help us to pay for on-going conservation and access work in the woodland. Thanks for your support.

Car parking in Comer Woods is limited so please share lifts where possible. If you're feeling really energetic, challenge yourself to a 'Dudmaston Duo' - cycle to us, run 10k and cycle home again! There are a couple of bike racks near the registration point at Heath Barn.

Other

Dudmaston Hall and visitor facilities will be closed during this event, check here for opening times. Please do not park at Dudmaston Hall as there is no pedestrian access from here into the woodland.
