Catch up with old friends, form a new tribe, debate ideas and share inspiration

Festival parties, community gatherings, brand demonstrations and an epic trail run thrown in for good measure. We have it all.

Run Away With Us

Voted one of the TOP 50 races by Runner's World!

Taking place over the Festival weekend, our adidas TERREX 10k Trail Run follows a classic route, strewn with natural obstacles. No hay bales or mudbaths here – just lots of great ascents, jaw dropping vistas, grassy trails and a great town centre finish.
