The Abominable Snowman

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

This year’s event will be spread over TWO days, so there is no reason for missing out.

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


Choose a 10 Km or 10 Mile distance on Saturday 30th, or opt for Sunday 31st day and take on a 5Km or  Half Marathon.

Or use the ‘Weekender Ticket’  to enter events on both days.


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.





Awarded to Category winners in each race.  Timings will be provided after the weekend of races.


A selection of Spot prizes and raffle prizes will be awarded after the day’s races have concluded.


Select either a Technical T-Shirt in bottle green or Cotton green Camo T-Shirt available from the online shop.
