Perfect for beginners

The Nayland 10k is inclusive of every runner, from beginners to experts, groups to solo runners. This isn’t a race, so you can run at your own pace. Runners will start in groups to ease congestion at the start of the route.

Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

We have such a unique route, full of ancient woodland and forestry and beautiful views across the Dedham valley. You’ll run across fields, through beautiful forests and you may even see Tony the bull! You will encounter some stiles, gates and small obstacles along the route, please respect the runner behind you.

Something for the family

Keep the kids and family entertained at the activity tent with colouring, face painting and other quiet activities.

Family 1k Fun Run

Perfect for kids to experience off-road running. Can you win against your friend?!

Fundraise for local charities

We donate the 1K Fun Run profits to Nayland Primary School.

COVID – 19

We may have to do things a little differently this time round. Any changes we make, we will let you know in good time.
