Beautiful undulating country road race in a stunning location and a start with a difference…..The 10km and 20km start at the same time but the 10km runners start 170m in front of the 20km runners all from the grounds of Moreton Hall, Warwickshire College. Runners head out along the drive then downhill through Moreton Morrell village, then it’s flat again as it winds through country lanes and through the village of Ashorne until a short rise at 6km before gradually winding downhill and flat back towards Moreton Morrell. The route heads into the lower entrance of Warwickshire College along the farm drive which is flat then rises from around the 9km mark into a flat half km finish for the 10km and out onto lap 2 for the 20km.
The race has been given the new ‘School’s Out’ theme this year as a good excuse for having a bit of Summer school holiday fun! There will be a children’s race followed by a Treasure Hunt as well as a free Barbecue for all race participants back in the grounds of Moreton Morrell College near the Race Finish. The school theme will also be evident at the event with the opportunity to win spot prizes for best costume …St Trinians inspired possibly? Or maybe like most runners we know, you need little encouragement! There is a specially designed T-Shirt for all race finishers although please note we cannot be blamed for any tomato sauce stains.
