We will return to Cornbury Park for the fourth time on April 1st 2017. Cornbury Park (www.cornburypark.co.uk) is a stunning country estate near Charlbury in the heart of Oxfordshire. The elegant 17th century house is surrounded by ancient forest, lakes, farmland and a deer park. The park is home to Lord and Lady Rotherwick who have kindly granted Monster Race permission to host an event in their grounds.

If you’ve run with us at Cornbury before you know what a corker of a venue this is. Featuring lots and lots (and we mean lots!) of woodland, undulating open spaces and water. Add into the mix the Monster’s obstacles (see the obstacle page for details) and you have one of the best obstacle course races you will come across.
