The Shere 42k, Half & 10k Multi-Terrain Event 2022

Date: Saturday 13th August 2022

Venue: Shere Recreation Ground, Upper Street, Shere, Surrey,


Surrey Trek and Run are pleased to announce that this years event will be held on the Saturday 13th August 2022. We believe this is one of the most stunning trail runs in the south-east of England, don’t just take our word for it check out Rocket Runner’s video blog on this page.

Three distances with varying elevation but all with great views over the North Downs and Surrey Hills.

All three races start and finish in the beautiful village of Shere, all three follow the same route out of the village up onto the North Downs. The 10k then does a loop through Oaken Grove, the Sawmill and back down to the finish line.

The 21k and 42k follow each other and separate at the bottom of the North Downs at Park Farm. The halfmarathon then heads off towards Ranmore whilst the 42k heads off to Leith Hill Tower via Wotton Hatch and Friday Street with stunning vista along all routes. Leith Hill is the highest point in the South-east of Englaand with views north to London and south to the English Channel. The 42k then follows the Greensand Way taking in other viewpoints including, Holmbury Hill, Pitch Hill, Raynards Hill, St Martha’s Hill and finally Newlands Corner before heading home to Shere.

10k Drink Stations – 1 – Elevation 217m

Runners World editorial on the Shere 42k

‘The area is an ideal setting for an offroad trail run,’ says Cain. ‘We staged our first
