Run Wexham 2018
Registration is now open!
We have given Run Wexham a complete revamp in 2018 and we are very excited about what a great day it is going to be. So what is new for 2018;
In 2018 we a delighted to be able to move the event to Black Park Country Park, an already established running route for many runners using the undulating paths and trails.
Along with the established 10K run we will be also adding a 5K option for runners. Additionally, the family fun run will happen before the 5K and 10K race so parents don’t miss out on this wonderful uplifting run alongside children of all ages.
Run Wexham will importantly have chip timings this year which will provide more accurate finishing time for every single runner.
Surrounding and supporting the actual race itself will be an event village where all are welcome to come to support the run and support Wexham Park Hospital. Things such as a bouncy castle, face painting, retailers, food and refreshments will all be situated near to the start/finish area to make this a really great day for everyone involved.
Enhance your whole experience by getting a charity place and being part of Wexham Park’s team, from the moment you sign up right up to event day. Wear your charity vest with pride and enjoy the camaraderie amongst your fellow charity runners! When the training is getting tough and you’re wondering what you’ve got yourself into, the knowledge that you’re raising money for a cause you really believe in will give you a purpose and keep you on track right up to race day!

Top tips for running
When training and preparing for your run, remember the following:
- Every run is different – have a look at the course and identify anything that you might need to train for, like hills
- Get advice when you need it – we can help with any questions or point you towards the right direction with experts or experienced runners
- Stay safe – this may seem an obvious goal but our training team can provide advice, to help keep you out of harm’s way during training and on race day
- Stay motivated – Especially if you’re running for the first time or pushing yourself to do your first 5K or 10K, staying motivated during your training can be a challenge. We can help you find what motivates you along with the people you will be supporting and offer ways to keep in touch with us and other supporters and also help build communities of fellow runners
