Wiltshire County Off Road Championships 2017/18

Well done to all who ran Slaughterford 9. 
Ed Knudsen beat everyone else in this event - magnificent and Joanne Mumford was our first lady, a great race.
We have won the County Division 2 championship with one event to go - so do come to the presentation at the end of the next event - The Terminator - where we will be presented with the prize.
Thanks to all your great efforts our 'A' team are currently in second position in Division 1, sandwiched between Chippenham's two teams (A & B). But to retain second place we need to put in a special effort.

This trail series of events which use a public right of way, is almost flat, passing along trails between fields in the open countryside, will start on the first Thursday of April and continue through each month until August - always on the first Thursday of the month. We finish at the Longs Arms in Steeple Ashton where we are made very welcome.
More details can be found on the AVR website
Come to the Longs Arms in Steeple Ashton. We will open entries on the day from 6pm, the race starts at 7pm
Please enter online if possible - it makes it so much simpler for us.

Avon Valley and the Westbury branch of the Rotary Club organize a 33 mile trail event around the perimeter path of the Salisbury Plain.
The next event, which is already full, takes place on March 11th. Do come and cheer the runners as they arrive at the finish at Leighton Recreation centre.
We would also welcome a few more marshals.
