After a sold-out race last year, the Frieth Hilly race will be back on Sunday 16th October 2016.

With its route through the stunning Hambleden Valley, the Frieth Hilly is one of the most challenging and inspiring 10k and 5k runs in the area.

And with those breathtaking rolling views come great challenges – it’s not called the Hilly for nothing! Runners can put themselves through their paces whilst being cheered on by the wonderful local community, knowing that by entering the race they are raising funds for Frieth CE Primary School.

A record number of runners joined the race last year and time is running out to register for this years event on  Sunday 16th October 2016. Enter online at Runner’s World or visit

With entertainment, refreshments and a crèche with qualified CRB-checked staff, parents of young children can run together whilst their little ones play.

This year, Olympic Gold rower Zac Purchase will be there doing the honours in the our prize giving ceremony.

Key points:

  • 10k race is open to 15-year-olds and above, entry fee is £16
  • 5k race is open from age 11, entry fee £12
  • Registration is from 8.30am and the race starts at 10am!

See you there – and we really mean it, MyMarlow entered a team of… erm 1 last year, and loved it!
