All entries from 2020 have been transferred to this year’s event. There will be no new entries.


Race HQ

The HQ for the event is Beaconsfield Rugby Club at Windsor End, Beaconsfield, accessed from the roundabout in the centre of Beaconsfield Old Town on the A40, post code HP9 2SQ. The clubhouse will be open from 8.00am for a prompt 10.00am start. Please arrive in good time to collect your number & timing chip.


There is plenty of parking in Beaconsfield Old Town, with a short walk down to the Rugby Club. The club regularly hosts large tournaments with little problem with parking. Please note that there are a few residential roads behind the club that will not be available for public parking and marshals will be advising entrants to park elsewhere. Please see map below for details.


The clubhouse has changing rooms and showers. There will a bag drop next to the bar in the clubhouse.

Race Number

The race number must be attached to the front of your running top. Runners must run with the number and chip allocated to them. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, especially in the event of an accident. This is a condition for entering the race and any runner identified as not doing this will be disqualified and barred from future events. On the reverse of the race number are details for you to complete for any potential problems during the race. We have to emphasise this fact as it is now a requirement of England Athletics through whom we obtain our race licence. We strongly advise you to complete this when you pick up your number and chip.


Toilets are in the clubhouse, with three additional ladies toilets outside the clubhouse. Please do not use the bushes in the vicinity. This is a condition for the use of the Estate and the Rugby Club.


The race starts at 10.00 am on the entrance to the Estate so please assemble by 9.50 am. Dress appropriately for the weather and run at your own pace. If you are feeling unwell, do not run. The start is 300m from the clubhouse and there is a need to cross a public road, please take note of marshals’ instructions.


The course is a large 5 mile loop around the Estate, starting and finishing at the same point. Please note that we do not recommend the use of headphones when running as marshals’ instructions may not be heard. We suggest the wearing of suitable running shoes with some grip but no spikes. 
Click the link below for a rough guide to the course. The start/finish is marked by green flag.

Chip Timing

Your timing chip is attached to the back of the race number. Make sure you cross the mats, both at the start and the finish of the event but only once.


The course will be marked with arrows and tape on the bushes. No signs mean you are going the wrong way! Please obey the marshals’ instructions. They are there for your convenience and safety as any cross country course has many potential risks. Should an accident occur, please ensure that the marshals are informed immediately.


Please be aware that spectators are not permitted within the grounds of the Estate beyond the bridge over the M40.

First Aid

First aiders will be in attendance at the finish. If you feel unwell, contact a marshal who will arrange help. If you are not a regular runner, please check beforehand with your GP. We will have a 4 wheel drive vehicle available to collect any runner who suffers a serious injury.


Once you have crossed the finish line keep moving through the finish area to the marshals to receive your medal.


Drinks and snacks will be available in the Rugby Club for runners and spectators from 8.00am onwards.


Prizes will be presented at the Rugby Club at 11.30am. The prizes will be as follows:

1st, 2nd and 3rd man and women

1st man and woman in 40-49 category

1st man and woman in 50-59 category

1st man and woman in 60-69 category

1st man and woman in over 70s category

(A runner can only take one trophy)

First man and woman to reach the finish line will also receive a new pair of running shoes kindly donated by Runners Retreat.

There are no team competitions and no prize for on-the-day entries.


Entry fees will not be refunded even in the event of circumstances beyond our control leading to the cancellation of this event.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday 17th April – Burnham Joggers Race Committee. Enjoy your run!

Welcome to Burnham Joggers

Burnham Joggers AC was one of the early wave of running clubs that became popular in the 1970s. On club nights we head out for runs in and around the village of Burnham. In the summer we are priviledged to have access to the National Trust owned grounds of the Cliveden Estate and, of course, the beautiful, traffic-free, lanes of Burnham Beeches.

Other Races

In addition to the Beaconsfield 5 Mile Trail Run, the club hosts the Burnham Beeches Half Marathon in August at Caldicott School, Cliveden Cross Country in January and a private 5k event for local clubs in the spring, also at Caldicott School. Surplus funds generated from these events are donated to local charites chosen by members. Each year some £5,000-10,000 are given to good causes by the club.

New Members Welcome

Twice a year the club hosts a beginners course. From zero to 5k in 8 weeks is the promise. Led by members who are qualified running coaches, many graduates from this course go on to become members and make running a regular part of their lives.

Make running part of your life

Burnham Joggers meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening at Burnham Bowls Club. Members span all ages and abilities. We enjoy training, socialising and joining together to compete in open races and races against local clubs.
