4 Races, 1 Magical Day
15th May 2022
This is no standard 5k or 10k run!
World Heritage site Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire is the magical location for this family-friendly fun run with a beautiful lakeside off road section.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the publication of the first Harry Potter book, the 7k route has been extended (7.4k) and will now go past the ‘Harry Potter’ tree as seen in the film of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Take in the magic of the surroundings and ‘fly’ (i.e. run, jog or walk!) around the grounds of Blenheim Palace.
In addition to the main 7k, you can take part with your dog, 4 miles for buggies and wheelchairs and 1 mile for under 15s.
The 7k takes a scenic route around the trails and paths of the Palace, including a spectacular lakeside section. The course (which is actually 7.4k) offers a challenging run and magical surroundings. The route has been amended to go past the 'Harry Potter' tree and Rosamund's Well, making it slightly longer.
The 4-mile route follows a similar course, missing out the off-road lakeside section to make it suitable for wheelchair and participants pushing buggies.
Note, it is a challenging route for wheelchairs but you can bring assistance to get round.
The 1-mile race is for under 15s, starting at 10.15 am with the other events starting after it has finished, meaning that parents can watch their children and participate in the 7k run.
