Update 29 May

Things are still looking good for 20th June! Many thanks to all those that have contacted me about running or deferring your entries.

Things will, inevitably, be different this year. No changing rooms, no showers, no T-shirts or medals, the baggage area will be outside. Please don’t bring any spectators with you! At the start I’ll need all the runners to spread out and line up in rough finish time order – the timings will all be chip times, so there’s no advantage to crossing the start line quickly.

Now the good news! The Arlebury Cafe will be open for refreshments. They are also baking commemorative cookies for all the runners and there will be hampers of locally sourced goodies for the age category winners. We have some spot prizes to give away too, including bottles of prosecco from Tesco, beer from Itchen Valley Brewery and gym membership from Station Mill. Huge thanks to all of the local businesses that are supporting us.

If things are looking good in a week’s time we’ll open up for a few more entries – keep your eye on local social media.
