The Shere 42k – 21k – 10k Multi-Terrain Event 2024

Date: Saturday 14th September 2024

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 14th September 2024. We believe this is one of the most stunning trail runs in the south-east of England.

The 10k route heads north out of the Shere Recreation Ground (123m ascent) levelling out along Drove Road, through Oaken Grove and joining a trail that leads down to the Sawmill at Honeysuckle Bottom. From there it’s back up a small incline to retun back to the start via the same route you came up on.

The NEW 21k follows the same route as the 42k out of Shere until it reaches the A25 crossing at the Wotton Hatch Pub junction where you will turn left for 200 yards along the path then turn left again over a style. Head down to Coomb Farm, digonal rise up towards Ranmore turning left again before you reach the gate where it eventually picks up the same route you came along onto the north Downs back to Shere and the finish line.

The 42k has varying elevation but with great views over the North Downs and Surrey Hills.

The 42k starts and finishes in the beautiful village of Shere, the route out of the village is a steep one up onto the North Downs Way.

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 England 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.

Runners World editorial on the Shere 42k

‘The area is an ideal setting for an offroad trail run,’ says Cain. ‘We staged our first
race in 2012 with 110 runners and received some really positive feedback. The first event was a 40km race, but we added a 2km loop on it over the Greensand Ridge and make it into a full marathon
