Trust 10

The Trust10 is a monthly, free 10k trail run that gives you the opportunity to take up a new challenge, get outdoors and explore Stourhead’s wider estate.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Whether you’re training for a challenge or looking for a sociable jog in the fresh air, join us at Stourhead on the fourth Sunday of every month for an 8.30am registration and a 9am start.

Stourhead’s Trust10 10k trail run is a challenging, multi-terrain run involving some public roads. Beginning and ending at Stourhead house, the trail takes in pasture, woodland and an Iron age hillfort with King Alfred’s Tower marking the mid-way point. Trust10 is all about enjoying the experience of running in beautiful landscapes, surrounded by nature, so if monitoring your running time is important to you, please remember to bring your own timing device.

We're looking for volunteers to support this event, so if you are interested, get in touch: stourhead@nationaltrust.org.uk
