The Brinkworth Mini Bash 2km 2022
02 October 2022
THE BRINKWORTH MINI BASH 2km
Our Bash has a shorter version which is suitable for both children under 17 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 fun 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 will vary as it picks its way through copses and fields. The route is generally firm underfoot in early October 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 time is so that any parents running in the 10km can watch their children run and see them receive their medals.
