A challenging five mile race in the heart of the beautiful North Wessex Downs, starting in the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant and following part of the Test Way through woods and farmland. The course is completely off-road, taking in rural footpaths, woodland tracks and a couple of "undulations". The event has been held annually since 2009, attracting fun runners, club athletes and local villagers alike.
After an initial short flat section, runners will find themselves tackling Hurstbourne Hill. The reward for the brave (or foolhardy) first male and female to the top of the hill is to be crowned King and Queen of the Hill. After this, there is a relatively flat section within Doles Wood, followed by a steep descent and a final ascent of Hurstbourne Hill before a fast downhill section to the finish on the George V playing fields.
Sections of the course are not open to the general public outside of race day, so please do not run the route without seeking permission from the landowners.
