Ironwood Challenge 2017

Sunday, February 26, 2017 - 11:00

The Ironwood 10k is our season opener and is a circular 6 mile run starting at Long Ashton village hall. From here the route climbs steadily up into the surrounding woodland and then across a few open fields to take in the local scenery before heading back into the forestry commission woodland, where the route passes through an old quarry (a little climb) down the odd hill (and of course back up), before crossing open farmland to finish back at the Village Hall. A challenging and fulfilling run with fine views thrown in for good measure. The course is fully marshalled.

Tyntesfield 10k - 2017 (SRC Championship)

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 - 19:00

This is fast proving to be our most popular race with last year over 400 entrants and steadily climbing, but then who can blame runners as this race takes in the beautiful parkland scenery of the National Trust’s Tyntesfield Estate. The route circumnavigates the estate and its outlying fields with the race starting right outside the picturesque manor house before dropping down into the outlying fields.

Nailsea Festival 10k - 2015

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 19:00

NOTE: REVISED DATE. This race finds us on our own home ‘turf’ as the race starts and finishes at Nailsea and Backwell Rugby Club. This 10k race is different to our two other events in that it is primarily a road race, where the route leaves from the rugby club up Engine Lane, out onto the countryside lanes surrounding Nalisea before dropping onto Youngwood Lane then back to the outskirts of Nailsea (two laps here with a little slope thrown in for good measure) before dropping back down Engine Lane to finish at the rugby club. A quick 10k road race where you can set a pb!!
