    After a one-year break we are still hoping to stage the race in the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. We always like to try and offer a different 'off the beaten track' venue each year so hopefully Gloucestershire has some interesting and different fell terrain to offer.

     Race Course

    The distance will be circa 9 - 10 miles/1600 feets ascent. It will traverse the North West Cotwolds..

     Race Venue, Race Registration and Presentation Venue

    Registration and the race start and finish will take place at the Winchcombe Cricket Club, Corndean Lane, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. GL54 5NL.

     Accommodation

    As usual, there is no official accommodation provided. Competitors are asked to make their own arrangements. Bed and Breakfast and hotel accommodation can be found in the area by going to the local tourist information on-line.
