Organiser's Description

Come and join us for the inaugural Barbury Castle Sunset 10KM.

Starting at The Barbury Shooting School, Swindon, this route takes in some beautiful countryside and hopefully a perfect sunset. A relaxed trail run for everyone, with a friendly welcome assured from the Wroughton Whippets, come and join us and help raise money for Brighter Futures.

Brighter Futures is the charity for Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust which includes Great Western Hospital  and community health sites in Swindon.

Its a great charity and one we are committed to supporting here at Wroughton Whippets


Along tracks (The Old Ridgeway) and grass, the route involves the odd hill or two (including the Iron Age Attack at the castle) – but don’t worry, what goes up, must come down! 

The route takes you underneath Barbury Castle, up the Iron Age Attack to the castle, before going through and along the spectacular Smeathes Ridge. 


Your reward; a unique finishers medal, a drink at the bar and a great sense of achievement.

Toilets, First Aid and refreshments afterwards at the shooting school, and a fully marshalled course.

All profits will go directly to Brighter Futures.

There will be no "on the day entries" so please sign up in advance.
