In case you missed the history first time around, for 25 years between the years 1977 and 2001 it was THE off-road race to do, with runners coming from all over the country (and abroad) to complete this beautiful but challenging race. Foot and mouth caused its cancellation in 2002 and following this the race organisers were unable to get momentum back to re-start this popular race.

In 2015 we had the help of David Joyce, the original Race Director to get it re-launched, and we are delighted to say it didnt put him off and he is back with us, we couldnt do it without him.

Whilst it broadly follows the Offas Dyke Path, one of the quirks of this unique race is that to reduce the number of stiles runners must navigate, David has once again gained permission of every farmer/land owner to have the race go through their land and open their gates.

We hope the spirit of the event which was there every year from 77-01, will continue and youll look forward to this great race. The route follows the road out of Hay, crosses open fields and tracks, climbs Betwys Dingle, then follows country lanes, climbing steadily, before a steep climb to the top of Dysgwilfa Hill, with panoramic views and an easy run down to Gladestry. The ultimate climb to the top of Hergest Ridge is amazing, and once at the top it's a glorious 4 mile run before dropping down quickly to the finish in Kington. Total climb 2,500ft over 14.5 miles.

Do you like Gin? Do you like running? Will you run for 2 miles for Gin?

This pretty much sums up the Tempo Run For Gin Relay. A fun social drinking/running event where you run and then you drink!

Sound familiar? In fact thats very similar to its sister race, The Run for Beer Relay. The only difference is the Run For Gin Relay takes place in Cheltenham and at the end you get to drink Gin. Whereas the Run For Beer Relay involved drinking Beer and takes place in Stratford-upon-Avon! Its all very simple.

The drinking bit involved every runner receiving a glass of gin courtesy of The Little Gin Company on completing their 2-mile leg and a licensed bar will be open all evening so you can continue to hydrate after your exertions. There are non-alcoholic options also available for those of you below 18 and T-totallers.

Previously known as Edgehill Half Marathon we decided to rename it after the beautiful start/finish venue, the course doesnt, in fact, go up Edgehill although there are one or two inclines. We are always overwhelmed at how beautiful Compton Verney is when we are setting up and at the race. If you have never been, the beautiful house and grounds are well worth a visit.

The half marathon sets off from the front of the house and winds through the villages of Kineton, Little Kineton and Radway before returning up the cheeky Pittern Hill at 11.5 miles and back to finish on the lawns of Compton Verney by the lake.

The last two years have been blessed with beautiful weather, we had to make sure there was plenty of water available but it made for glorious events.

Do you like Cider? Do you like running? Will you run for 2 miles for Cider?

This pretty much sums up the Tempo Run For Cider Relay. A fun social drinking/running event where you run and then you drink!

Sound familiar? In fact, thats very similar to its sister race, The Run for Beer Relay. The only difference is the Run For Cider Relay takes place in Worcester and at the end, you get to drink Cider. Whereas the Run For Beer Relay involved drinking Beer and takes place in Stratford-upon-Avon! Its all very simple.

The running part involves completing a two-mile run each, in teams of 4 on a route around a beautiful riverside route in starting right by Browns Restaurant near the main bridge across the River Severn.

The drinking bit involves every runner receiving a glass of Cider courtesy of Stows Cider on completing their 2-mile leg and a licensed bar will be open all evening so you can continue to hydrate after your exertions. There are non-alcoholic options also available for those of you below 18 and teetotalers.

Like the Beer Relay, this is a really fun event. Whilst there are a few running club teams battling it out at the front there are prizes for the best fancy dress, fasted pub team and several others. There will also be food available to buy on the night.

This will be part of a trilogy of relays which will include the Run For Beer Relay and the Run For Gin Relay. Why not sign up for a trilogy?

Did we say that this is the 10th year for this event which continues to go from strength to strength?

The course changed slightly for 2016 with the start on Shipston Road and the finish by the bandstand on the recreation ground, we felt that this worked well and the route will be the same for 2018.

It is a course that shows everything that Shakespeares Stratford has to offer with a finish coming past the Bards RSC Theatre. Previous results show that this event is ideal for gaining personal best times which is useful for both experience runners and those new to the distance.

Thank you also to Lodders Solicitors who continue to support this event and are our principle sponsor.
