Event Info

Hairy Legs is a 2 loop x-country adult only run over beautiful Oxfordshire hills and through stunning woodland. Each loop is measured as 6 Hairy Legs km (Hairy Legs km are pure guess work as the course has not been measured). The Challenge can be completed as a Solo or in a Relay Team.

The race starts and finishes at Sheepcot Recreation Ground, off Gatehampton Road in Goring-on-Thames, RG8 0EN. Follow signs to the Railway station in Goring and the start is just 250m further along from there on the left hand side of the road.

Little Legs 1 (school year Reception - 3) will do 1 lap of Sheepcot Field and Little Legs 2 (schools year 4-6) 2 laps of Sheepcot Recreation Ground.

The race starts and finishes at Sheepcot Recreation Ground, off Gatehampton Road in Goring-on-Thames, RG8 0EN.
