The Sarsen Trial and Neolithic Marathon, one of Wiltshire’s important leisure events will take place on Sunday 6th May 2012. A significant date for serious runners, walkers and cyclists, it is also a fun day for families wanting to enjoy the countryside and raise money for Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
This year’s event includes the Full and Half Marathon, a range of walks (7, 11, 15 and 26 miles) and a new route for the 25 mile multi-terrain, circular mountain bike route, starting and ending at Stonehenge. This new cycling route will this year go through Salisbury Plain allowing cyclist to enjoy the vast beauty of this unique landscape.
This is a rare opportunity for people to access an area which is usually closed to the public and to enjoy this spectacular landscape. We had over 2,300 people taking part last year and we expect this year to be no exception. The marathon places are limited and in our 50th year we expect a record attendance, so we urge people to sign on as soon as possible.
It’s a fabulous, fun-filled day on a route full of ups and downs and a mixture of grassland and farm tracks stretching across stunning landscape from the Vale of Pewsey, through the Avon Valley and across the wilds of Salisbury Plain.
The route is fully stewarded with first aid cover and support vehicles and a free coach service is offered for walkers between the starting and finishing points. The Trust provides regular water and toilet stops with refreshments available along the route.
Entry fees cover the Trust’s costs for organising the event and more funds can be raised for Wiltshire Wildlife Trust through individual sponsorship. This year we are asking participants to take our £50 challenge and to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship. Sponsorship forms can be downloaded from our website.
