On Sunday 24th April, the forth annual Ridge Off Roader running race will start from Bledlow Ridge School. In excess of 500 runners from the South East will race 10km or 5km across the Chiltern Hills on footpaths, bridleways and small stretches of road. It is a well organised, marshalled and supported event, providing runners with a superb opportunity to enjoy the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and challenge themselves on some killer hills! All proceeds are donated to Bledlow Ridge School.
The Ridge Off Roader race is a community event, licenced by UK Athletics, focusing on some serious competitive running but also providing a great sporting experience for all abilities.
The new route has massively decreased single track stretches and even less road, but don’t worry hose hills are just as beautiful, challenging, majestic and some what hellish! There is also a 1km and 2km races for younger competitors which aims to encourage the younger generations to get sporty.
Runner will receive a medal and goody bag as they cross the finish line as well as a warm welcome, as they are cheered home by many parents and children from the school. Bacon butties, great coffee and even a recovery massage service is available. There’s also a Bouncy Castle to entertain the little ones.
