The ninth Silsoe Stride was run on 26th June 2022. We thank everyone for your support.


Put 25th June 2023 in your Diary.


The Silsoe Stride is set within the magnificent grounds of Wrest Park and neighbouring farmland. This provides for a very scenic 5K and 10K race, ideal for runners of all abilities including those new to running, with a gently undulating route where you can Run, Walk or Jog.  Within the 10K race there are a few hills.  Our fun, friendly atmosphere ensures everyone has a great time, with a popular Children’s Fun Run also on the day.

The Children’s races vary from 100m to 1000m and children are allocated to races after discussion with parents. All finisher receive a medal. First girl and first boy in each race will also receive a trophy.

The Stride is organised by volunteers and groups from the village and all profits are shared to beneficiaries within the village.  In 2022 we made a profit of just under £1,600, down compared to the £4,000 in 2019 after a drop in entries due to the Covid-19 status. This has been shared between the Silsoe Village Hall, Silsoe Lower School PTA, Silsoe Pre-school, Silsoe Millennium Green Trust, Silsoe Cricket Club, Silsoe School Football Club, Silsoe Scout Group and Silsoe Carpet Bowls Club.  All of these groups were involved in the planning, organising and running of the Stride.

We thank the Burton family for allowing us to race over their private farmland.

We much appreciate the continuing support provided by English Heritage, National Sameday and the Silsoe Sports Centre. We welcome new support from Firelec Controls Ltd.

There is plenty of space for everyone on the Wrest Park playing field and we welcome family groups to spread out. Out team will wear suitable PPE and we welcome supporters to do the same when coming close to others. We currently plan to have a refreshments area.

If necessary, we will start the senior races in waves rather than en-mass and barriers should keep supporters away, but not too far, from the start / finish. Chip timing will support this.

There will be toilets spaced out with suitable control of access.
