Avebury8 Nine 2022
20 November 2022
The Avebury8 Nine is a 9-mile-ish trail race which takes place in the Wiltshire countryside, starting and finishing at Avebury, a World Heritage Site famed for its stone circle. The route follows byways and bridleways and can be wet, muddy, rutted and difficult under foot.
Race HQ is at the Avebury Sports & Social Club, just beside the stone circle on the Beckhampton Road. The start is in Bray Street just outside the village. The race takes runners on fields and tracks to Yatesbury and then over the Neolithic 'causewayed enclosure' of Windmill Hill and back to the village High Street to finish next to the club house. (In the event of flooding on the fields coming off Windmill Hill we may have to make some last minute route changes, but the finish will still be at the Sports & Social Club.)
Commemorative mugs by White Horse Pottery for all finishers. Winners' prizes: trophies / awards for first 3 M/F plus age group awards.
