West Wycombe Park, near High Wycombe, and in our view, possibly the most magnificent setting for any running event in England, plays host to the most exciting event in the running calendar.


“Amidst the venue’s magnificent beauty, tackle the tortuous torment of precipitous parkland as you take on this 26.2 mile multi-lap challenge, with each and every beastly lap offering lung-bursting, soul-destroying, never-ending ascents.”

Can you tame “The Beast”?

This exciting event has full marathon and half marathon options for individual runners and walkers and a unique multi-size TEAM option.

    For true heroes ready to take on the full six-lap MARATHON option within the 8hr time limit. (£40.00 entry fee)
    For those wanting a little more time to savour the stunning beauty of West Wycombe Park, we have the three-lap HALF-MARATHON option available. (£35.00 entry fee)
    Get a TEAM together and share your collective marathon challenge. Teams of 2 (£35.00 each); 3 (£32.50 each) or 6 (£30.00 each)

Beauty and the Beast is back for 2013 and to celebrate the acclaimed relationship between one of the UK’s most stunning venue’s and possibly one of the most challenging trail running challenges, what better than to launch entries on Valentine’s Day!

Well done to everyone who took advantage of our Valentine’s Massacre pricing and to those who were quickest off the mark and secured themselves a brilliant Helly Hansen wash bag.

Don’t worry if you did miss out though – early bird pricing is now available until 14th May 2013.

What can we say – you’re certainly seeing the Beauty rather than the Beast at the moment!
