An undulating 9.5K road race along the country roads, starting at 11.00 am from Newent Community School. The route leads out onto the scenic country lanes of Newent, past the International Birds of Prey Centre on the outskirts of Cliffords Mesne, before looping back to Newent where the race continues onto Foley Road, the largest cul-de-sac in Europe, through the town centre, where many buildings date back to the 13th century, past the half timbered Market House (built in 1668), finally returning to the finish line at the School.

A beautiful, newly designed, bespoke medal and gift for all finishers. Check out our Facebook event to chat with other entrants, and receive the latest updates.  As we were unable to run the event last year, we’re really looking forward to seeing you in November.  We have a special medal this year to commemorate recent events.

Please note this route is not quite correct as it omits the start on the school field.

Here’s a reminder to whet your appetites!
