Please watch our video about our brand new event for 2018, the Henley 24 Hour Trail Race!

The Henley 24 Hours is a 24 hour individual or team relay race held at Temple Island Meadows, just outside the town of Henley-on-Thames in the sunning Oxfordshire countryside. The race is run over an off-road 8km mixed course including forest trails and open parkland and towpaths, and a short section of concrete path.

If you enter as a team, only one member of your team is allowed on the course at any one time, and everybody in your team must complete one whole lap. At the end of the 24 hours, the team in each category who has completed most laps, wins!

The dates for next years event is Saturday the 16th June to Sunday the 17th June 2018. Camping is free and we provide parking and toilets, showers, 24 hour food and drink, entertainment, sports massage, ice baths and fully qualified medical support. You can also pay a little extra and buy a pre-pitched tent from our friends at Pillow (click here to be taken to their website).
