NotesThis will be our 5th year and we are keeping the entry limit to 650 as we did last year. This event is a few weeks before Brighton Marathon, Manchester and the Great Welsh and of course well placed for London, Blackpool, Stratford (Shakespeare) and Newport. The 20 mile option is a two-lap flat course in lovely countryside close to the river Severn. The 20 km option takes in one lap of pretty much the same course. There is a cut-off time for the 20 mile route of 4 hours. Access to the event HQ is on quiet roads and is only 6 miles from junction 14 of the M5. There is ample (hard standing) parking and the start of both courses are no more than 400m from the event HQ, which has good toilet facilities, changing and a baggage store.

20km route description The start is on the roundabout right next to race HQ. We run through Berkeley village and then past the Salutation pub in Ham. Then follows one loop of a circuit around Bevington Deer Park on very flat and quiet country lanes. There are 3 drinks stations. After the loop you head back but at Ham cut back to the power station without going through Berkeley. The finish is just outside race HQ. Water, t-shirt, cakes, hot drinks, medals and results displayed on a large screen await. 20 Mile route description. The start is around 200m form the race HQ. We gather on the road and then head off towards Ham without going through Berkeley itself. Then follows two loops of a circuit around Bevington Deer Park on very flat and quiet country lanes. There are 3 drinks stations which you visit twice - so 6 opportunities to take water on the course. After the two loops you head back via Ham, the way you came out and finish just outside race HQ. Water, t-shirt, cakes, hot drinks, medals and results displayed on a large screen await.
