Entry Fee: £15.00 - £17.00

Take on the distance of the Beast!

Unlike our other two races at St Aidan’s Country Park, the St Aidan’s Winter Beast is not flat, and it’s not easy. The course takes in sections off the well-trodden paths and trails, to give you some genuine climbs and (weather permitting!) some proper cross country mud! That said, if you pause to catch your breath there are some great views of the park to be had from the top! A minimum donation of £500, or 30% of net profits from this race, shall be donated to the RSPB – whichever sum is greater. RSPB is a registered charity in England and Wales, number 207076, and in Scotland, number SC037654
