Western Heights Trail Races

March 17th 2024

Welcome to the 'Western Heights Trail Races.'  The first of these brand-new, annual running events will be held on March 17th 2024.  The races are set around the hills of the UK's largest Fortress, built to protect our coastline against foreign invasion. Over the years, Dover's rugged coastline has been the scene of many battles and now this is your chance to challenge yourself around this historic landscape.

On the day, there will be multiple distances to challenge aspiring trail runners, as well as the seasoned ones amongst us.  All races will start from Dover's Farthingloe Barn.

Entries open January 7th 2024

Do something amazing: join our volunteer team

Volunteering at running events can be a truly rewarding experience. Not only do you get to give back to your community, but you also get to be a part of an exciting and energising event. Whether you are helping with registration, handing out water at an aid station, or cheering on the runners, your contribution can make a huge difference in the success of the event.


Volunteering also provides a great opportunity to meet new people and make connections within the running community. You may even be inspired to take up running yourself!


We are also interested in speaking to anyone who could help with social media, photography, creative writing, marketing and first aid.


So if you are looking for a way to give back and be a part of something special, consider volunteering at one of our events. Your time and effort will be greatly appreciated and you may just find that you get as much out of it as the runners do!


All volunteers will also receive free transferable entry to a future Hellfire running event.

To hear about our upcoming volunteering opportunities, please submit a request.
