There has been an official road race through Prestwood since 1993, when it was organised by the Prestwood 10k Association. In 2013 the Chilterns MS Centre and the Prestwood Rotary Club took over the organisation of the event. Over the years a 5k race and a children's obstacle course has been added.
In 2018 we added the Children's Ultm8 Warrior. This is a mix of flat race and an obstacle course. Its great fun for kids aged 4-11, and races are arranged by school year group. From crawl nets to climbing walls there are lots of obstacles to get over, under or around. Weather depending, they might even get a bit of a soaking from enthusiastic volunteers (parents are welcome to help with this obstacle!).
New for 2019 is the 5k Fun Run, a more lighthearted race where fancy dress is welcomed! Wheelchairs and scooters are also welcomed to take part in the fun run.
As well as the races there will be great refreshments on offer, making this a real family day out. Anyone can come along to soak up the atmosphere and cheer on the participants.
All of the races start and finish at Sprinters Leisure Centre. Car parking is available on site.
