Summer Solstice 6 Evening 10km Trail Run

From the people behind the Cannock Chase Trig Race and Scott Sports Dirty Dozen, we bring you a brand new 10km event for 2023.... The Summer Solstice 6 evening trail run.

What's the event all about?

10km trail run that takes in some of the high points around the Milford / Brocton area of Cannock Chase. You'll start by heading up from Milford Common to the Millennium Sundial. From that point it's down the hill then back up to the Glacial Boulder. Then you head across the to Trig point before a return the to the Sundial and downhill to finish on Milford Common.

There's one important factor you'll need to know.... Like the Trig race this event is self navigation. We'll mark the route with arrows painted on the floor at the junctions and we'll publish a suggested route of the course (see map) whilst also making the GPX file available for download.

Pre Course Social Run - 28th May / 8am / Run And Ride (ST17 0UR) - We'll be holding a free pre course social run. Open to everybody, we'll take a steady run around our suggested route. No need to book. Just turn up

You'll have the added challenge of needing to find your way without the help of course signage.

We're organising this event not for profit but rather for fun. Any profits made from the event will be donated to Muscular Dystrophy

Directions to the venue

ST17 0UH - Google Maps Link Here


Please follow the signage or Postcode ST17 0UH for Milford. From there look for "Event Signage" for parking. Signing on will be at Run & Ride which will be open from 5.30pm. Parking costs just £1 which is a cash only machine. We recommend that you arrive at this area at least 30 minutes before the start of the event. Spend some time and warm up before the start and make sure you wear suitable clothing for night time conditions. The start area can get quite windy so a windproof jacket and full length bottoms are recommended.

What To Wear For The Event:

Given the event is at night time and in the dark then the temperature could be a lot lower than normal. We'd recommend you plan for damp / chilly conditions. A long sleeved top and a thin windproof that you could remove if you become too hot. Avoid heavy fleece or cotton bottoms as these will just soak up any water and make running hard work. Trail shoes are recommended. The course will feature some technical trails which aren’t suitable from road running shoes.

Other Information:

Prize presentation will take place around 30 minutes after the 3rd placed runner from each category has crossed the line.

Full results will be available online from Thursday after the event. A link to these and the photos taken on the day will be posted on the Facebook page

At signing on you'll need to find your name against your correct category and sign your name.

Hi - unfortunately I can't enter this event anymore. Can I officially withdraw as I don't want to be that annoying no-show on the day? Thanks Nick Manasseh.
