12th, 13th & 14th June 2020
Nestled in picturesque organic farmland between Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury, The Suffolk Trail Festival (TrailFest) is a unique opportunity to enjoy running in the beautiful Suffolk countryside.
Our 6, 12 & 24hr endurance races are the first of their kind here in Suffolk. 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 (click for details), making this an ideal event to bring your family / supporters along to.
