The Festival Village

Run Rabbit Trail Festival

23rd & 24th May 2019, Leicestershire

Talks, comedy and music for runners
(& spectators)

Festival village

We know how much runners like to party. On the Saturday evening, things will start to happen in the festival village, offering an atmosphere to meet and chill with like-minded runners.

Details of the 2020 acts will be announced as and when they are confirmed. If you’re interested in taking to the stage, please get in touch. 

If you enter The Quest, entertainment and camping passes for runners are included free.  

For all other runners, tickets for evening entertainment are available to you and your spectating friends and family during the check-out process when you enter your chosen challenge.


The 2019 line-up... (2020 to be announced)

At our first event, as the sun went down on the Saturday evening we enjoyed an inspirational talk, comedy and live music…

Sarah Johnson

Voted ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ by What’s On, and with a Edinburgh Fringe and Leicester Comedy shows behind her,  Sarah looked after our festival audience on the Saturday evening.

Elise Downing

Writer, speaker and adventurer, Elise is famed for running just 5000-odd around the British coast. 301 days on the trail and 200 marathons later she is the youngest person, and only female to have completed the challenge!

Tristan Maxsted

Former member of The Shades, and now an up-and-coming artist in his own right, Tristan saw us into the night with a selection of chilled vocals and acoustic tunes.


Ever-popular at our sister Race Harborough events, Taste Outside headed up our food options in the festival area. In 2020 we hope to offer more of the same, to be announced soon…


The site has basic camping facilities with pitches suitable for tents, camper vans and caravans, including portaloos and showers. Heading over to our camping page to see our camping FAQs.
