The 10K run
The undulating route includes a mixture of quiet roads, farm tracks and footpaths.
Starting in the Emmer Green Primary School field, it heads out of Emmer Green via Gravel Hill and follows the quiet lanes towards Kidmore End.
The run then heads across fields before descending down through the golf course and back towards the school field along St Barnabas Road. Watch out for the cheeky hill near the end!
You can download a GPS file of the route to your device from PlotARoute.
As it is only our second year, we are not using chip-and-pin timing. However, there are a team of official timers next to the race clock on the finish line.
Trophies will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female.
The Mini-Oak Challenge
The children can run as many laps of the school field as they can, raising money through sponsorship, winning themselves a medal.
