Are you tough enough to take on the Abominable Snowman course?

Choose the challenging 10km distance, or for the really brave, there is a 10 mile option!

It will be wet, it will be muddy, it will be cold and it will be steep – add in some natural obstacles and this will make for the most challenging of extreme cross country runs.

Set in the spectacularly rugged grounds of Cheverton Farm, Shorwell, the course will test your fitness and your resolve – can you take on and beat the ‘Snowman’

Plus! We will stage a ‘Mini Snowman’ for children. Using 1km of visible trail, kids can have a go at an organised adventure run for FREE! Supervision is required.

***Please note: All distances are approximate and may be modified in accordance with the conditions of the terrain on the day.


New for 2018, prizes will be awarded by race number lottery. Everyone who starts the race will have a chance at winning one of our lovely prizes, with race numbers drawn at random after the race (results and category positions will still be published after the race – there will be no podium presentations on the day).  We will award trophies on the day for the first man and first woman in each distance.


Online entry has now closed.  On-the-day entry is available at £25.00 (cash only) for both distances.

Junior entries (11 – 16) are £5.00.  All juniors are to be accompanied on the course at all times.

MINI Snowman entries are free – register on the day.
