Ruth Holmes demonstrating the runnability of Burnham Beeches The 2011-2012 Varsity match will take place on the 10th of March 2012 at Burnham Beeches, near Slough in Berkshire. For those who haven’t run on Burnham Beeches before, it is a very runnable forest with plenty of thicket and contour detail - so should make for exciting racing!
