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,26th May
Wells 5k/10k
One of my favourite races - it is 60% road and 40% track through a wooded area passing under two stone bridges (what goes over them, I do not know; cattle?
There is also a hill; you can watch the householders taking advantage of this traffic free morning to trim their hedges
... and Wells is a beautiful small city, second smallest to the City of London
Sunday, 2nd June
Crewkerne 10K
The Crewkerne 10K is an out and back course with a degree of undulations. The Road race takes in quite roads to the North of the town taking in the villages of Merriott and Hinton St George.
Sunday, 9th June
Lacock Races
This is a fully CLOSED ROADS event taking in the tranquil and picturesque lanes of the Wiltshire Countryside and through the historic streets of Lacock itself. It is an ideal race for the first time runner and you can expect to post a good time on this flat course. The 10km and Half Marathon route are officially measured accurate courses.

Don't forget, there is always a club run from Pound Lane each Sunday starting at 09:30.
