The Ross 10k, 5k and Fun Run were started in 2011 to raise money for Acorns, the Children's Hospice Charity, and to date over £5,000.00 has been raised by the event. Every penny of the registration fees, £15 for the 10k, £5 for the 5k and £2.00 for the Fun Run, goes directly to Acorns
This Autumn Half Marathon is run in the Forest of Dean at the end of September. Using the same organization (but a different course) as the popular Spring event, this race follows a forest trails course with no road crossings. This course has some interesting hill challenges and offers a chance to experience the Forest with its late-summer leaf canopy.
10k run through the closed roads of one of the country’s prettiest towns on a summer evening. Ludlow is well known for it’s narrow and hilly roads and the race takes in a number of the key landmarks. Ludlow10’s undulating course is challenging, but not out-of-reach for less experienced runners.
A 46 mile race over 2 laps of mixed terrain. This race is very welcoming to those trying their first ultra-marathon. The terrain is a mixture of canal path, forest track, mountain paths and only a small amount of tarmac. It's in Wales in November though, so there will be weather!
Back for 2018 on Sunday August 19th at 10.00 sharp.

This race was introduced to the Herefordshire running calendar in 2012 principally to give local runners an opportunity to race over the classic distance of 10 miles. The course starts and finishes at Hereford Rowing Club and can best be described as undulating and is mainly run on rural roads around the apple orchards of Breinton village.
The course record is held by Rhys Park of Cheltenham Harriers who won the 2013 race in a time of 54.07. Rebecca Davies of Wye Valley Runners holds the ladies course record with a time of 68.57.
The race also hosts the Herefordshire 10 Mile County Championships.
This unique event is a must for all multi - terrain runners. Many competitors return regularly to try and better their performance or just beat that train while others have run nearly every year since the races started. Most serious runners have heard about it either from their friends, TV, or the press so if you haven’t already competed perhaps this year is the time to attempt it.
Race the Train takes place alongside as far as practicable the route taken by the Talyllyn Railway on its journey to Abergynolwyn and back. In order to do this all courses use a mixture of public roads, lanes, un-metalled roads, tracks, agricultural land, and rough grazing pastures. The terrain varies all the time and can be very wet & muddy in places, the routes also ascend and descend quite steep terrain and runs on narrow footpaths with little chance of overtaking.
