Be a 10k or 5k champion, just by taking part!

Chestnut Tree House are proud to once again be the charity partner of the Madehurst South Downs 10k & 5k, which will see some 400 runners take on undulating tracks, trails and roads around the picturesque village of Madehurst on Sunday 20 June 2021.

With much of the route on private land, it’s a rare chance to enjoy parts of the South Downs not normally accessible to the public.
