Join us at the Suffolk Trail Running Festival


With a backdrop of picturesque pines and heathland, The Suffolk Trail Festival (TrailFest) is a unique opportunity to enjoy a weekend of trail running adventures in the heart of the forest.

Whether it be a 3k fun run for all the family to enjoy, a 10k trail race to get the heart racing or a 6 hour, 12 hour or 24 hour endurance challenge, we are confident you will take away some fantastic memories.

Our 12 and 24 hour races can be entered solo, as pairs or as a team (24hr only) of up to 8 runners and the aim is to complete as many laps of our 5 mile course as possible in the 12 or 24 hour time limit. This is a test of endurance, speed, fitness, mental toughness and teamwork!

Camping, refreshments, children’s activities and live music will be on hand to add a fun & friendly festival vibe to the weekend making this an ideal event to bring your family / supporters along to.
