Overview

The Shrewton Bustard 10k is a brand new race for 2019 organized by the recently established Shrewton Running Club and provides an opportunity to sample the delights of running along the edge of Salisbury Plain.

The race starts from the recreation ground field in the small but busy village of Shrewton, close to Stonehenge. The runners head east along London Road towards Larkhill before turning left and heading out towards Salisbury Plain.

Reaching the site of the former Bustard Inn, the route turns left for a 3.5km stretch along tarmac roads which afford stunning, expansive vistas over the plain.

A short 150m incline tests the legs, the effort being rewarded with a 2.5km gently downhill stretch through quiet country lanes to the finish back at the recreation ground.

The race is open to runners of all abilities and also forms Race #3 in the Wiltshire Road Race League.

Shrewton Running Club can offer local runners support in preparing for this race. Please come along to one of our training runs or contact us.
