THE BRINKWORTH BASH 10K
It's back!! After a couple of years off we are so pleased to be welcoming you to the 2022 Brinkworth Bash.
The Bash attracts off road enthusiasts from all over Wiltshire and beyond. Off road newbies will also find it a great introduction to multi terrain running as it includes a variety of surfaces with quiet paths, tracks, byways and some minor lanes in rural North Wiltshire. The undulating and varied route is generally firm underfoot in September although a wet summer could make some sections interestingly muddy, as it did back in 2017! But there are also some fast sections and in dry conditions very fast times are possible.
We are the first league event for WORL (the Wiltshire Off Road League) of the coming 2022/23 season.
