Road and Off Road Running

Here is a list of recommended events for the next five weeks:

Don't forget many of these races are now filling up fast, so get your entry in early, so in some cases I have selected a choice of two events the same day.

Sunday, 5th August
Old Down Estate 5/10k plus
The 5k/10k (2 loop 5k) which is a multi-terrain and off road course. It begins in the idyllic grounds of Old Down Country Park before heading out for a superb 1.5 mile woodland section which can become very muddy and challenging!! The course then takes in some fantastic open countryside before heading back into the woods for the uphill section leading back into the park. The course then takes in the amazing grounds of Old Down Country Park before heading to the finish line.
Sunday, 12th August
Salisbury 54321 trail
The Salisbury 5-4-3-2-1 walk, or trail run is an event suited to all the family, with a choice of distances from 5km to the more demanding 42k/Marathon, or even a 50k Ultra Marathon. The routes will be over footpaths, bridle ways and quiet country roads in the Salisbury Wessex area. The walk/trail runs, will take you past a variety of sites of historical and scientific interest and through Country Estates not usually open to the general public This has been made possible by the kind permission of several landowners along the route and including English Heritage.
