Further information

Modelled on the infamous Caesars Camp races, these footraces take place in Surrey, featuring a wide mix of terrain, woodland and contouring in and around the Box Hill, Mickleham and Headley areas. Indeed, the race name is a play on words as Headley was part of the Copthorne Hundred, an administrative division devised by the Saxons.rnrnThe races start at Mickleham Village Hall (Race HQ) with a new improved route of just over ten-mile loops (therefore the 50k consists of 3 loops), providing a cumulative of ascent gained of approximately 2,260 feet per loop. The route will be fully marked on the day with signs & tape. GPX files will be available to all entrants.rnrnFollowing the hugely succesful running of the event in 2021, we have added an extra distance to the races. We now offer a 100km race as well as the 50km, 50mile & 100mile options.
