The Abominable Snowman

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

This years event will be spread over TWO days, so there is no excuse for missing out.

With distances from 5Km up to Half-Marathon, there are options.


Choose the a 5Km or 10km distance on the Saturday, or for the really brave, there is a 10Km or Half Marathon on the Sunday.  Or use the discount code to enter the BOTH DAYS for the ultimate challenge.


Whichever distance you choose, 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, what a way to end 2023.

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 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.




The first three men, women and juniors overall in each distance will be awarded prizes at a podium presentation as soon as is practical after the race.  Full results, including age category positions, will be published after the race.
