10K Saturday 24th June 2017
Run the Ridgeway Revenge, Half Marathon or 10K and take on the challenge of undulating miles set along Britain’s oldest path. Race or run part of the ancient trail walked by soldiers and herdsmen 5000 years ago. Experience the mystical Alfred’s Castle and classical Ashdown House set within the breathtaking natural beauty of the Wiltshire Downs.
Ridgeway Revenge – The Clue’s in the Name.
A cracking off-road long half marathon – 13.6 miles – run through glorious countryside using paths around Bishopstone and the ancient Ridgeway. The scenic route meandered over fields, up and down hills, past historic Ashdown House and through wild flower meadows before the “revenge” - just as your legs were tiring – an unexpected quad-shredding hill at 12 miles. However, it was followed by a welcome descent to the finish. The Half and the 10K race were staged by runners for runners (you can always tell), with adequate parking, water stations, marshals, toilets, chip timing and as a finisher’s memento, handmade soap. Both the Half and the 10K were run through stunning scenery that’d satisfy all from the first time off-road runner to seasoned off-road fiends.
