|Details:||This is a challenging 5-mile/7km footrace attracting a variety of runners and walkers.
The course begins at St Mary's Church in Long Crendon, following footpaths past historic Notley Abbey to St Nicholas' church in Chearsley and back again past the River Thame. The race is almost entirely off-road, with narrow sections, stiles, ditches, bridges, a level crossing and several steep hills.
