Hurstbourne Tarrant Parish
Hurstbourne 5 Race
A challenging five mile race in the heart of the beautiful North Wessex Downs, starting in the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant and following part of the Test Way through woods and farmland. The course is completely off-road, taking in farmland, woodland tracks and a couple of "undulations". The event has been held annually since 2009, attracting fun runners, club athletes and local villagers alike.
The event is organised and run entirely by volunteers. All proceeds are donated to local charities.
There is also a 2K fun run for children
The next race will be in April 2018

Plans are well underway for the 10th Hurstbourne 5 Run, to be held in April 2018. As ever, the race cannot happen without the kind support of lots of volunteers. We therefore just wanted to make sure the date was in your diary. If you are already able to commit to helping out again this year, please click on links below. If not, don't worry, we'll send out a reminder in March.
