Start Point

We start in the field south of the Blue Bridge by Ebley Mill on the Ebley by-pass (the A419). This is slightly repositioned from former years, as the new path, even with a Cotswold Way sign on it, ascends a ramp right by the traffic lights 50m to the East of the Blue Bridge. It is a farmer's field, normally with cattle. Low noise and keep closely together please.

Please be sure to arrive a reasonable period of time before the start for registration, preparation and briefing. The race will start without you.

 

Finish Point

The finish is at the Old Spot Inn, Hill Road, Dursley.

 

Parking

At Ebley Mill we really need you to park in the Sainsbury's Overflow Car Park on the A419 roundabout at Dudbridge. There is no parking at all at Ebley Mill. Definitely avoid parking on the A419 curb.

 

At Dursley there is a public Car Park by the Old Spot, but it can normally be relied upon to be full once a few relay cars have squeezed in. Please do not park on Hill Road as the runners need to get up there with the cluster of the start - your wing mirrors will not survive!

 

Race Profile

Glorious woodland running through the long Beech woods. But.... hilly. Say no more.
