Have you been down to the woods lately?
I'm sure you will be in for a big surprise, because every year on Easter Sunday there's a great race of mass suffering. Where runners pitt their wits against each other, the muddy water, the hills, the 100 plus steps, and just when you thought you had finished, a steep rope climb

A very well organised and fully marshalled event, by Bitton Road Runners.
A race that suits all abilities, friendly atmosphere, a chance to burn off those Easter eggs or make room for some.
The route covers just under 6 undulating, multi terrain miles.
It starts at Vicarage Road playing fields in Hanham, before delving down to the scenic river Avon path. Then it's up the 100 plus steps, before you go into the murky woodland trail.
Mind your head on the pipe! Carry on along the winding river path under the ring road bridge, then maybe stop or just grab a drink at the water station. Carry on up through the woodland trail, back along the river, then it's up to the rope climb. Smile as you pull yourself up.
Not far now to the finish line. Job well done!

In 2020 we will have chip-timing in place - watch this space for more details. We will again have gruesome medals for every competitor. The bar will be open for refreshments - bacon sarnies and tea/coffee pre-race and a full bar post-race.
