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 bordering Sonning Common 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!

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.

We have a dedicated sponsorship website to make it easier for your friends and family to donate. Please click on the link to the Mini-Oak page. Please ensure you add the child’s name and class in the ‘comment section’.  The child who raises the most money individually will have the chance to start the adult’s race as in previous years.
