A Run With No Witty Name
12 Oct 19
So....... what are we gonna have ya doing this time then?
Well, we thought that you might like to have yourselves a little 50k jaunt around an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)...........and that's what A Run With No Witty Name will provide you with. Ta dah!
Starting at the National Trust in Tisbury, nestled in the heart of the Nadder Valley and smack bang in the centre of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs AONB, the route will take you through some of the most truly stunning and visually stimulating countryside that the South West has to offer. ......nay........correct that......that the entire country as to offer. You will find yourself making your way around the Fonthill Estate and the Vale of Wardour for approximately 32.27 miles .....OK, we know that is a soupcon over 50K.... and completing an overall elevation of approximately 3600 ft.. Eventually (after a few bonus miles no doubt), you will end up exactly right back where you started your journey in Tisbury. Much hilarity and back slapping will then commence.
Each season of the year brings it's own beauty to this route .......You don't want to miss this......We don't want you to miss this either.
The start point and finish point is at the National Trust, Court Street, Tisbury, Wiltshire,SP3 6LW .Parking will be available near to the Start Point. A runners rest area with a safe baggage drop area, toilets and a Medical Team will also be located at the Start Point. There will be 4 fully stocked aid station in total - one at the Start Point and a further three on the route itself. This will give you approximately 8 miles of running/walking/sauntering/ charging downhill/crawling uphill in between food & water stops, It's not really a 'run'..............more of a 'mobile picnic' really.
The event starts at 0900 hrs (9am) on Sat 12 Oct 2018 . The cut off time for completing the route is 9 hours later at 1800 hrs (6pm). The course will be fully marked with tape and signage. Marshalls will be present and want to help you not get lost.......sorry....... help you not get geographically embarrassed!!
