Places: No places available
Wendover in Buckinghamshire is the location for the Rail to Trail - West run; the fourth and final in the series. This will be a fantastic end to the series where you get to enjoy the best of what the Chiltern Hills have to offer. As the name suggests, expect to encounter some hilly parts but these will only go to help show why the Chilterns are such a popular area. Overall, this is set to be a tough and challenging course, so get ready for it! Our well marked courses weave their way through the heart of Buckinghamshire, taking in sections of the Ridgeway, as well as other fantastic trails. As always, there are three distances to choose from: 10(ish)k, half(ish) marathon or marathon(ish). The marathon will be two loops of the half marathon route. You will then know exactly what is in store for your second loop; where to ease off and where to really open up, giving you the best chance of achieving one of those negative splits! This is sure to be a great finish to the series but even if you haven't managed to take part in all four runs, there will still be plenty to celebrate!

Event day overview
Registration Time Briefing Time Start Time

You will receive your race number and electronic chip timer at registration. There will also be a small amount of race day paper work for you to complete, so don't leave it too last minute and have a mad rush before the race has even begun! The race briefing is mandatory for all runners and will take place immediately before the race starts. This is where you will be given important information about race rules, safety and last minute course changes.
Start times are staggered to limit any possibility of congestion along the route. You and your friends can sign up to different distance runs but not have to wait around for too long for each other once you've finished. There will though, be some refreshments available at race HQ and you can help support others over the finish line. Share your running high and excitement with strangers and friends alike!
As with all the Rail to Trail events, the event is set up so that you can travel to and from by train. This helps limit our impact on the environment, means that you don't have to worry about driving tired and you can also enjoy a celebratory drink after you've finished! However, should you need to drive, local parking is available. There is a pay and display car park at the station. Obviously, parking is limited and as such we are strong advocates of car sharing. Please see our Facebook page to arrange this - great for the environment and great for making new trail running friends! Should the car park be full, you will need to find alternative local parking. If this is the case, please be mindful and courteous to our neighbours; after all, we are all visitors to their home town.
