If you haven’t already been initiated into the Bolt, we should warn you that you probably won’t be setting any personal bests at this event.

It’s a tough course; there are hills, stiles and pinch points, as well as fab views, a water crossing and a wide variety of fields, woods and paths. All the quirky things in fact that make this one of the best-loved and most memorable 10km events in the West Midlands.

Blakedown Bolt route

Icon

 

The route begins with a lap of the sports field, then heads SW between Forge Pool and Ladies Pool, It includes short sections on quiet country lanes, but is predominantly along scenic woodland and field paths and circumnavigates Mount Segg.

There are a few stiles to add some spice! Then it finishes back at Blakedown Sports Field. It’s a tough course; there are hills, stiles and pinch points, as well as fab views, a water crossing and a wide variety of fields, woods and paths.

Event Details

Overview

Is nicely varied, with a few hills and stiles along the way. Apart from some very short sections on quiet country roads, it’s almost entirely traffic-free. You’ll be running through beautiful Worcestershire countryside, taking in farmland and woodland, making a loop around Mount Segg. We can promise you superb views, heaps of variety and the much-loved/loathed water crossing!

Because of the rural, cross-country nature of the route, we do a HUGE amount of work on the course in the days leading up to the event. Please bear this in mind if you do a trial run beforehand, and rest assured that on race day it will be beautifully pruned and trimmed.

FAQs

No dogs no cycles! Please obey Marshals and take extra care at road crossings.

Marshalling

Our race relies on our fantastic marshals. Without their on-the-day help we wouldn’t be able to hold our event. They are all volunteers. Some are themselves runners, although most are just enthusiastic local residents who want to get involved. We would love to hear from anyone who can spare a few hours during the early evening of the event on the day. Please complete our I can Marshall form and we’ll be in touch. We get rave reviews for our marshals and we really can’t do this without you!

Changing and toilets:

 We are delighted to offer excellent changing and showering facilities at the newly built Sports Pavilion on Blakedown Sports Field, including a disabled toilet.

Drinks:

 At least one water station during the course and one at the finish.
