We return once again to Rushmore Estate in Wiltshire and its amazing countryside scenery to host the popular Ox Races weekend. This year we’re back to earlier in May, avoiding the May Bank Holiday and half term, and running from the Friday to Sunday. 

The Ox Races is a series of trail races held over a weekend that consists of daytime and nighttime 10.5Ks, a half-marathon, a 50-mile race and a ‘do-as-many-laps-as-you-fancy’ 12-hour Frolic event for teams and solo runners.

This event is far from flat, but it’s set in stunning forest and woodland, which provides the canvas for bluebells and wild garlic. This weekend has something that will appeal to all, from speedsters who want to test themselves at the front to a more relaxed, fun, everyone-welcome friendly party at the back.

The Ox Race weekend also offers you the special chance to get your hands on an Epic medal. Complete the 50-mile race and one other distance of your choice to earn your extra bling, or set yourself the monster of all challenges and complete all five races. See our 2023 Epic finishers here

When you enter our races you will be able to opt out of receiving your finisher’s goodies, which we usually hand out at the end of the race. Instead, the cost of your goody bag will be donated to the Wilder Dorset Appeal, and you can read more about that project here. If you don’t opt out, you will still get your goody bag, and you can optionally choose to make a personal contribution if you wish here. Every runner still gets a medal. 

To keep up to date on all the information on the event, make sure you’ve followed the Facebook Event.
