History of the race

Thanks to great help from the authorities at both Waddesdon Manor and the Waddesdon Estate, the club has been able to organise a variety of races within the grounds of the manor and has also been able to support charities within the Waddesdon area. Following such events as road relays and the Race for Life, the club now organises a summer evening 5km race which starts and finishes at the front of the house. Since its inception in 2004 the race has grown and now attracts over 300 runners. Waddesdon Course Records updated 2016 Waddesdon Race Winners
