Templeton Trail Race

The Templeton Trail Race is an approximately 6 mile race in Templeton Woods. The 2024 race was at 7pm on Friday 7th June.

The race is a modest introduction to trail racing, ran mostly on well-defined park paths, but with some trail path and short climbs. It is a one lap route around Templeton Woods. The race is intended as a fun introduction to trail running. It is open to anyone over 18 years and over.
