The 24th running of Over the Hills will not now take place on November 1st 2020.

It has been converted into a virtual event.

It is 12Km of hills, mud and a river crossing and great fun.

Starting at 10:00 from the iconic West Barn, the 12-kilometre course takes in Barton Farm Country Park, joining the Kennet & Avon Canal towpath at Avoncliff. After that the route runs the Avon river meadows, over the Freshford Inn Bridge, up and down hill past Sparkford Mill, up hill to the A36 layby Drinks Station through Friary Wood, back down again through the woods, and across the Iford Manor meadows.

Fording at ‘Iford’, the route goes uphill through the Iford Manor grounds, back in via Upper Westwood, down into Avoncliff, and finally flying back in along the canal towpath to the finish.
