6 Miles Multi Terrain. 750ft Elevation. 

Canicross start: 11am.  Runners start: 11.15am

Sunday 28th November 2021

The Howling Bull Run is a 6 mile, mainly off-road running event, first run in November 2015. Starting at Walford Village Hall, it climbs up Bulls Hill along the beautiful Wye Valley Walk, then loops around the woodland footpaths on Leys Hill and Howle Hill. 

To make things more interesting there is a 'route option' at about 5 miles - You can choose the shorter and steeper 'Howler' route (at your own risk!) or play safe with the more runnable 'Bulls route'. The choice is yours!

There is even a small section of tarmac for the road runners..

TRANSFERS. Please let me have name, DOB and club (if any) of new runner if you want to transfer. Email info to: howlingbullrun@gmail.com . I would prefer if you could email a few days before event, but will do on the day transfers if necessary. I do not want any runners to run under a different name - it breaks the insurance criteria and not good if any accidents occur! Thanks

Lots of prizes to be awarded and hand crafted wooden medals awarded to all.


Min age 16.   It will be hilly and muddy - Please wear trail shoes / grippy daps!

Charity update. Regrettably the Walford Pre-School Playgroup will be shut down at the end of October 2020. Both my children attended the Playgroup and I setup the Howling Bull run 5 years ago to help fund it, so it is quite a sad time for the local community. As for Howling Bull, it will remain as a charity run. We will be supporting various charities, including Mind, Hereford & Worcester Community First Responders, Gloucester Cave Rescue group and the Walford Community Support Scheme. If you have entered, but would like a refund due to the change of circumstance, I will be happy to oblige. Otherwise, all will be the same as per usual! Thanks Dan
