Riverbank Rollick 2018
14 January 2018
Thornbury running club has opened their first event of the year; the Riverbank Rollick on the 14/01/2018 at 11.00!
The Riverbank Rollick is 9 miles long with 120m of ascent and is 80 per cent off-road, on trails, bridle paths, across fields and through woodland.
It starts at the Pithay near St Mary’s Church, Thornbury, and goes out to St Arilda’s Church at Oldbury, down to the scenic Severn Riverbank, turning left along the estuary for about 1.5 miles past Whale Wharf with views of the Bridge and Chepstow.
It then heads back through the village of Littleton Upon Severn and beside Thornbury Golf course to return to the Playing Fields.
There is a water station at Littleton, approximately 5.8 miles (9 km) from the start.
The course offers different terrains, different places, different views… and is probably different to anything you’ve tried before. Challenging too, but very rewarding.
We will be issuing medals for each race organised by TRC. Together these medals will join together if you complete all 3 races (Riverbank Rollick, Thornbury 10km and the Oldbury 10 miler.)
Entries will be available through full on sport website only, it is very likely the event will sell out quickly so we do not envisage entries on the day!!
There will be an option (available on the full on sport website) to go on a waiting list should the event fill up.
There is also a transfer option allowing you to swap your place with another runner online and you can check the entries list and see the change immediately.
There will be team and individual prizes in all major categories.
The race will be run under ARC Rules (Permit applied for).
Race numbers with attached chips will be issued on the day - the race is gun to chip timed
