Organiser's Description

Compton Bassett 5 Mile

Sunday 23 August 2020

The Route

Setting off circa 250m beyond the Compton Bassett Benson Hall (SN11 8RQ), the route is flat! The first section of the route will see you run out on the minor C15. Compton Basset road towards Highway. At circa 0.8 miles you will leave this road and turn right to begin the next section of the route: the 'Highway Loop'. This loop is a quiet unclassified country road that is, most importantly, nice and level to ensure that you settle into your rhythm for the next couple of miles. As you reach half distance you will rejoin the C15, Compton Bassett road, albeit further up than when you initially left it. The route then continues along this road, turning left again at circa 3.2 miles to contnue along this road until at just over 4 miles where you will bear right to remain on the road that you left earlier to begin the final mile towards the finish which is back at the Benson Hall. 

We, at Calne Running Club, hope you enjoy this route.  It has been carefully planned to lead on from our ever successful Heddington 5k series and will help ensure that fast, flat and enjoyable races are in your diary.

The race has an UKA race permit and a certificate of course accuracy, together with suitable medical cover and plenty of water at the finish. Courtesy of the UKA race permit, the results will appear on the Power of 10 / Run Britain rankings. 

As with our other races, chip timing is courtesy of LPS Events.
