The Waddesdon Manor Summer Evening 5K Road Race is held with the kind permission of Lord Rothschild and The National Trust. Every finisher will receive a special commemorative mug.
The presentation of the prizes will be as soon as possible after the completion of the Race and hopefully no later than 8.30pm. No competitor may win more than one individual prize.
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.
