The Brinkworth Mini Bash 2.5km
29 September 2019
THE BRINKWORTH MINI BASH 2.5km
Our 10km Bash has a shorter version which is suitable for both children under 16 and adult novice runners. It is aimed at juniors, parents wishing to run with their children, and runners of all ages who want to complete a shorter run. The course is over some of the route which the main race takes except that it is on firm tracks or field paths and is entirely off-road and traffic free. The route is a joy for children wanting to enjoy the countryside and for adults looking to try out a more forgiving surface than roads or pavements. It is mainly very flat but with varied as it picks its way through copses and fields. The route is generally firm underfoot in September and even in wet weather there are few if any muddy sections. It is an ideal way to enjoy running in a beautiful rural environment.
The race is timed so that any parents running in the 10km can watch their children run and see them receive their medals.
The Start and Finish are in Brinkworth Recreation field, where free parking, a toilet block, a shelter/baggage tent and cafe refreshments will be available. The field has a play area and there will also be a free bouncy castle.
