The Abominable Snowman

Loading Events

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 slightly modified in accordance with the conditions of the terrain on the day.


***Pre-entry opens on September 1st 2018!***
