White Star Running returns to the Wiltshire Downs for the Larmer Tree races once again… but in the summer! Bringing you a whole new set of races, the Summer Larmer races go over a lot of the ground from the Spring Larmer Tree races, but the change in season makes a massive difference to the landscape. It also means we can offer something for all the family too.
This event weekend includes four epic trail races, plus a new kids’ race and a beer mile for charity. They’re a bit hilly, and all take in the valleys and hills of the Rushmore Estate, with spectacular views across the countryside.
To complement the summer races, the team at Rushmore Estate have asked us to provide a Wellness Festival. This will showcase some other outdoor activities, and local providers will be exhibiting skills that will help give you a boost alongside your running.
To start with, why not prep yourself for your race with a fast-feet warm up with Run Teach?
There will be both kids’ and adult taster yoga sessions thanks to Om and Me Yoga.
Active Therapy South will be available to diagnose any niggles or twinges you might have by offering a 15-minute consultation.
Run Fit Fordingbridge will be there providing post-race massage, some ladies’ run/walk sessions and a stretch class over the weekend.
The Jurassic Coast Trust will be co-ordinating a children’s treasure hunt, football activities and fossil discovery, as well as being on hand to talk about our Run Jurassic trail running festival happening in September.
Italk, a psychology therapy service, will be on-site to talk about simple ways to maintain your mental fitness.
And if you want to do some shopping while you’re there, our own White Star Clothing will have a stall, along with FLANCI Activewear and Leaping Fish, who produces premium skin balms using all-natural ingredients.
The best bit all these activities are FREE – yes, you heard us, FREE. We want you to come along with your family and camp, take part in a race, maybe two, and get involved in some other activities we’ve got on site.
