Organiser's Description

The 6th Hilly Helmet Challenge

Wednesday 10th August 2022 

The award winning Hilly Helmet is back, taking place at Leighton Recreation Centre at Westbury on Wednesday 10th August 2022 starting promptly at 7pm. It's great to be back to holding our event for our 6th year and our 5th event to be held 'on the night'.

Prizes will be awarded for the first male and female finshers and of course there's a prize for the best helmet. Naturally, we love to see your helmet creations and this year are offering the theme of the number 6 on which to base your designs on though please design anything you like and as long as you wear it to take part you're in with a chance to win the coveted Best Helmet prize.

This year we are adding NEW prize(s) for the first male and female finishers in the under 18 age category. Every participant will also receive one of our unique pottery mementos as they cross the finish line of course.

Once again, we're looking to help our charity partner Brain Tumour Support who appreciate our help as much as ever, especially after a much reduced couple of years of fund-raising opportunities for them. Brain tumour diagnosis didn't stop for the pandemic, so please help us to help them to continue their important work for all those affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.

Westbury cricket club enjoyed themselves so much last year, they'll be offering refreshments and 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.

The event will hold an Association of Running Clubs Race Permit.

Entry is £15 with £2 discount to members of ARC Affiliated clubs
