Farleigh Wallop Trail Race 2020
27 September 2020
The fun returns for a fifth year… but not as you know it! Due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have made the decision to host this year’s race as a Virtual Event!
As you are aware, the health and safety of our runners is of upmost importance to us and we will not do anything to jeopardise this.
The team behind the race have been working hard behind the scenes, looking into alternative ways we can still offer our runners the opportunity to run a trail 10k, whilst still supporting the wonderful charities that are so incredibly important to us!
You can still run the route if you so wish (whilst adhering to all current Government guidelines) or complete any 10k trail route around the country, on the weekend of the race (Friday – Sunday) and still receive your fabulous Farleigh Wallop medal.
All proceeds from the virtual run will be going to the 2 fantastic charities we supported last year, The Stacy & Lucy Foundation and Basingstoke Foodbanks.
This is Hatch Warren Runners’ fifth event, which will take place on the glorious countryside trails and in woodland in and around the picturesque villages of Farleigh Wallop, Cliddesden and Ellisfield, a stones-throw from Basingstoke in Hampshire.
It’s a challenging course, with a mix of undulating terrain including an old railway line, open fields (with some kissing-gates!) and beautiful woodland. There are some very short sections of road. We are very fortunate to have kindly been granted permission by The Portsmouth Estates to use their beautiful, listed ‘Home Farm Barn’ as race HQ. A warm welcome awaits you, with parking a short walk from the start. Please car share where possible. Take a look at our Facebook Page to keep updated with race news:
Stunning medal, goody-bag and plenty of cake and hot/cold drinks available. ALL proceeds from the race will go to local charities. Trophies and spot prizes and the cheeriest marshals and helpers you could wish to meet! Race distance approximately 10k.
