The Midsummer Murder trail races return for 2024 - are you up for the challenge?


The event takes place in the truly remarkable Hambleden Valley, with mile after mile of staggering Chilterns' beauty, picture perfect flint stone villages, country pubs and a fair few hills.

Our 10 mile and Half Marathon trail running courses are very challenging, but also achingly pretty. We'll be keeping the courses as per 2023, with the 10 mile event 10.4 miles long & the Half Marathon 14.3 miles in length.

There is a cut off time of 3 hours for each event - if you would normally take more than 2hrs 20 mins for a flat road Half Marathon, we recommend the 10 mile event.

  • Beautiful multi terrain courses - see the video below

  • 3/4 Water stations on course - NO CUPS PROVIDED

  • 5 notable climbs for the 10 Mile, 8 for the Half Marathon!

  • THIS IS A HILLY RUN! The Half Marathon measures just over 14 miles and has a cut off of 1hr 25 mins at 7 miles.

  • Minimum age - 18

  • Free downloadable race photos

  • Entries close on Thursday June 20th if capacity isn't reached

  • Race instructions online and emailed out from June 10th.

  • Fundraising for Camp Mohawk
