The Cotswold Classic is a firmly established event in the local running calendar and is once again part of the Oxfordshire County 10 Mile Road Race Championship. Its a beautiful meandering route through a number of Cotswold stone villages. It's undulating with one particularly long climb known locally as the hillzakilla (total elevation gain is 518ft). There is however, a very fast finish with the last mile and a half being more or less downhill from New Yatt. Finishers will receive a long-sleeve technical shirt and a beer at the finish!
