We look forward to seeing you again on 14th June 2020!

Orpington Road Runners are proud to bring you our event around the nature trails of High Elms

The course is challenging and hilly, but very scenic to make up for it. Faster runners should expect to add at least 5 minutes to their PB times, whilst slower runners will be delighted with the value for money of running a 90 minute 10k.


The race is a challenging single lap multi-terrain course through the Nature Trails of High Elms and some of Kent’s beautiful countryside.
