“We came, we saw, we cantered”
With the 2011 event a fond memory, we look forward to 2012, and horsing around in the beautiful Hambleden Estate for a third year running.
In the year of the Olympics, the Thames Valley seems the perfect place to host the finale of the Notorious Night Run series. Whether you sign up to run the daylight 5k(ish) or the torchlit 10k(and a bit), you’ll enjoy a right royal romp through a beautiful private estate: followed by our Notorious after-party, with legendary live music and local hospitality, and a comfortable conclusion as you drift soundly away in our onsite camping area.
Fancy dress is part of the fun, with riding regalia top of the what-to-wear list. When the gun goes off, a stampede of flat caps and horsey headscarves will gallop across the show field and over the first of many genuine horsejumps, for the benefit of their supporters.
Then it’s through the woods, over rolling hills and green paddocks to overcome natural and manmade obstacles such as Derby
Bank, Sleepy Hollow (where the Hollywood blockbuster of the same name was filmed), and the Final Furlong - you get the picture.
For the 10k, don’t forget your headtorch: we guarantee you’ll need it!
