Run Upcote Frequently Asked Questions
I first fell in love with the farm a decade ago, and every year since I've been back to help build the world's best festival, 2000 Trees. It was during one of these events a few years ago that the seed of an idea was born, around the camp fire, with a beer. It's taken a while, but now Run Upcote has been born with three key aims...
(1) Share the beauty of Upcote Farm, my favourite place in the world.
(B) Create a running event I would want to attend with organisation and a course I can be proud of.
(iii) Not lose money doing it!
It is a challenging time for events, but rest assured that just means we are being extra careful with your safety.
The race landscape is ever changing but we will adhere with and exceed whatever guidelines and restrictions are in place at the time. The event is also licensed by the Trail Running Association which means we will comply with all guidelines from racing's governing body.
You will receive a race briefing email prior to event day with information on accessing the car park, registering to run and how you can help us keep everyone safe.
Registration will be on the day, you will not receive anything in the post.
Businesses - see the "sponsor opportunities" page for some great ways to be associated with this and future Run Upcote events.
Volunteers - reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, we can never have too many supportive marshals out on the course and there are a couple of other key roles we'd appreciate help with too.
