Back by popular demand. Our Valentine’s Run is one of the hardest, but most rewarding runs on Runners World / Eventbrite.

This is one of two races being organised by Vigo Runners under the banner of the Vigo Valentine’s “Tough Love” Series (10(ish) miles or 10(ish) kilometres) the choice is yours!!!


If you intend to enter the “NEW for 2018” 10(ish) Kilometres race which takes place on the same day, same time and same location but about 4 miles shorter! You will need to search for Vigo Valentine’s “Tough Love” 10-ish Kilometres Race.

A proper Trail / Cross Country run, run by runners, who like to run and run challenging runs!!! Whilst this event is in no way a Fell Run, it is more suitable for “fell runners than “fun runners”…….make sense?

Confused????….. read this fantastic blog from 2017’s event….”a picture paints a thousand words….”

Valentine’s themed, but with a large dollop of “Tough Love”. Complete with muddy, winding trails and perched on top of the North Downs, comes complete with stunning scenery plus an ascent / descent of approximately 2,800 feet.

Whilst all runners are extremely welcome, we would point out that this is a 10-ish, hell-ish mile race suitable for seasoned trail / cross country runners and you enter at your own risk. READ THE BLOG ABOVE!

After all operating costs are met the balance of ALL money raised, will go to charity.


A Valentine’s prize will be awarded for the first couple to finish, plus a further prize to be awarded for the first Valentine’s couple to finish together!!!!
