The annual MINCE PIE TEN is our own local race which is held every December to raise funds both for local charities and the Club itself.
It is a very popular multi-terrain event which is contested over a challenging ten mile course, and sees many entrants returning year after year for a pre Xmas work-out!
Voted one of the UK's top ten races in Runner's World Magazine
NB. There has been a slight course revision in recent years, due to work on a new water treatment plant, this will still be the case - see map below.

The supported charity for 2014 is:
The Chartwell Cancer Trust was founded in 2005 when it became obvious to patients that staffing levels were under pressure. It sets out to raise funds to provide extra staffing at the Chartwell Cancer unit at the Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough. The PRUH is managed by King’s College Hospital and together both hospitals work to provide funds for medical staff and support patients and their families. Lily-Mae, the 3 year old granddaughter of one of our runners was receiving treatment for cancer and her family were supported by the Trust; sadly, at the beginning of August 2014 Lily-Mae lost her fight against this cruel disease
