Overview

RACE DETAILS A 4 (ish) mile multi terrain run to raise funds for Brain Tumour Support. Yes there’s a hill in (It’s in Westbury!) but it’s worth going up for the fantastic views you’ll experience as you run along the top before dropping down and heading back to collect your unique race memento at the finish. Fancy dress is encouraged with claret and blue being the colours of the day. All runners are requested to run in a helmet of choice and there will be a prize for the best one worn. There will be prizes for 1st man and 1st lady and a special prize for the best helmet used to run in on the night as well as finisher spot prizes and a raffle on race bib numbers drawn at prize giving at the end. You have to be present to win on your race bib.

Lovely course, great race for a great cause, but it ain't flat, clue is in the name. The additional fun of the helmet competition adds value. Highly recommend it
