Hilly Helmet Challenge - Hilly The VIIIth

Hilly Helmet returns to Leighton Recreation Centre, Westbury on 7th August 2024 starting promptly at 7pm. It's great to be back and we hope you'll support us once again in our 8th year as we once again help raise funds for the charity Brain Tumour Support. Please visit their website to see the range of services they provide at

There will be prizes for the first male and female finshers and of course there's a prize for the best helmet worn to take part on the night. We love to see you getting creative and as this year is the number 8, we're expecting our Henry (or his six wives) might provide you with some inspriration for your head gear and put you in with a chance of walking away with the much coveted Best Helmet prize. In any event, it will be great to turn up in a helmet you feel comfy in to experience the whole sensation of the Challenge of taking part in a helmet.

Every participant will also receive one of our unique pottery mementos as they cross the finish line of course.

It was great to have Westbury cricket club offering refreshments again last year which they'll be doing it once again, along with a BBQ.

We regret that due to the nature of the course it is unsuitable for wheelchairs. With an eye on all our particpants safety, runners are not permitted to run with dogs while taking part as some trails get quite narrow and depending on the weather could also become slippery.

Association of Running Clubs Race Permit number ARC/24/0229 will be in place for the event.

As always, we're very grateful for your support and keen to keep our event good value at just £17 with £2 discount to members of ARC and England Athletics Affiliated clubs. This will rise to £20 for on the night entry.
