Entry is now open for the Discovery Run, a new off-road trail-running event taking place at Petworth Park on Saturday, May 30.

Offering 5k, 10k and half-marathon distances plus a fun run, the Discovery Run will take in the beautiful 700-acre grounds of Petworth Park.

The Discovery Run offers a challenge for people of all levels of fitness and running ability, allowing entrants to run wild and discover nature. Runners will make their way along undulating single-lap courses, twist and turn through woodland areas, race through open parkland, navigate the deer park and take in the views of the picturesque lakes, culminating in a memorable finish in front of Petworth House.

Eventnts director Louise Cornish said: “The tag line is ‘Your Challenge. Your Discovery’, and we ask the participant to make their own discovery, whether they are doing their first-ever race, looking to conquer a new course, or purely wanting to explore further into the depths of Petworth Park.”

Entry fees are as follows: Discovery 5k, £14.50; Discovery 10k, £22.50; Discovery Half, £29.50; Discovery Youth 5k £9.50; Discovery Fun Run £4.50.
