Trust10 10K run

Are you a runner looking for a new challenge, an opportunity to train, or just inspired to get involved with outdoor activities and are new to running?

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Our free monthly 10k trail event will give everyone the opportunity to train whilst enjoying our special place.

Join us on the fourth Sunday of every month for our free 10k trail run. The route will take you across Dunstable downs, through Chute Wood and around meadows before returning to the Chiltern Gateway Centre.

The 10k course is two multi trail laps of 5k. If you feel 10k is too far, don’t panic as some runners choose to complete just one lap of 5k.
