Triffic Trail, the annual running event organised by Trent Park Running Club, will return to Trent Park in September.

The event has a long history going back to 1985 and prides itself on being a race for all abilities and all ages. There will be two runs taking place again this year; a 10km for seniors and 4.5km for juniors. The junior run starts at 09.30am and the senior run at 10.30am.

Both runs will take place within the picturesque fields and undulating trails of Trent Park, which is a really lovely place to run, especially in the autumn. We get a lot of runners returning each year, as well as new entrants.

Each finisher will receive a T-shirt, goody bag and water. There are prizes in different age categories, spot prizes, chip timing, and a fully marshalled course with water stations.

Peter Goldfinch, chair of Trent Park Running Club, said: “Trent Park Running Club is a running club for all, and the Triffic Trail is a run for all abilities. This is a real community event, with around 100 people volunteering each year to make sure everything runs smoothly.

“We have some brilliant sponsors who we are very grateful to and are proud to support some amazing local charities.”

Local estate agents Chamberlains Estates have been the main event sponsors for the past ten years and are donating 30 places to three local charities; Chickenshed, Nightingale Cancer Support Centre and Noah’s Ark; enabling them to raise further funds for these great organisations.

Last year’s race had to be cancelled because of the pandemic.

Triffic Trail will take place on Sunday 26th September and entries for can be made online:
