AVR Off Road Championships

The SMaRTT Smasher has been moved to 8th March, but of course many of you will be helping with or running the Imber Ultra.

The River Avon Trail 10k, which should have been run tomorrow, has been cancelled (not postponed) so we have decided to replace it in our Championships by the Dilton Dash 10k on 24th May – this is nice and near, in Westbury.

That means that the next championship event will be the Gwent League on Sunday, March 1st. - which was unfortunately cancelled

The first competitive 5x5 ...

... open to all runners (not just AVR) will be help on the first Thursday of April – see – spread the word amongst other clubs.

Other Off Road events which might interest you are:

21st March: Deep River Trail 10k at Exeter (108 miles from Trowbridge) 3rd May: "A WOW 2020" 10k at Andover (

9th May: Marlborough Downs Challenge
"The best race in the UK, possibly the world, is of course the Marlborough Downs Challenge" - The Trailrunner - Winter 2020

26th June: Bath Running Festival
… but don't forget the AVR Championship race the next day – Jack & Jill.

Happy Running, Anthony
