The seventh Silsoe Stride is set within the magnificent grounds of Wrest Park and neighbouring farmland. This provides for a very scenic race, ideal for runners of all abilities including those new to running, with a gently undulating route. The Stride is organised by members of the village and all profits are shared to beneficiaries within the village including the School PTA and Pre-School, maintenance of the Village Hall and Millenium Green and village sports clubs.
