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.

What's included:

  • Fully waymarked routes
  • Plenty of volunteer marshals to cheer you on
  • Up to 9 water stations depending on distance 
  • Emergency Medical Responders 
  • Awards for the fastest Male and female athletes
  • Bespoke medal for all finishers
  • Event Timing
  • Bag drop
  • Free post-race refreshments
  • Free onsite parking


Spectators are welcome all day at Farthingloe Barn where there will be a selection of food and drink vendors for all to enjoy.
