Setting out from Quakers Walk near the Kennet and Avon Canal, the route of eight miles is mostly off-road, a mix of undulating and hilly terrain with breathtaking views and dominated by the climb up Roundway Hill.
From there the route winds itself around the top of the hill before dropping down Heddington Steps. You will then run around the bottom of Beacon Hill and up through the gulley back to the top of Roundway Hill again, adjacent to Oliver’s Camp.
From there the route will follow a short technical section through the woods before dropping down off road under the pylons and back to Quakers Walk. Once you have exited Quakers Walk there will be a short stretch of canal towpath before turning into the Sports Club where the finish is on the cricket pitch.
The finish is an easy view for spectators so lots of cheering to be heard to help you over that finish line.
At just over eight miles, it appeals to those relatively new to off-road races, whilst being hilly and muddy enough to attract harder core entrants.

Trail shoes are recommended. If it is not muddy, the ground will be hard, dry and often uneven, there are rutted sections on both routes and you are responsible for your own safety – please take care!
Gun to chip timing.
Prizes will be presented to the top three male and female finishers, plus all age group winners.
