26.2-miles on trail starting and finishing in Henley in Arden guided by Ian
This one-off event has been added to the RunWithIan calendar for those of you who want to run a #marathon distance on 4 October 2020, take advantage of a guide (that's me), not worry about traffic and/or being in a crowded environment.
The route is ideal for those running their first trail #marathon. There are plenty of stops at gates, stiles, local sights and a shop at half way distance allowing us to take on food/water and ensure we capture the moments we share with a photograph or two.
The focus of the event is on completing the distance and not on achieving a time and running hard. This is a social, non-competitive event. Please note this is not a 'paced event' and will take circa 6-8 hours depending on the weather.
The route is traffic-free save the occasional road crossing, predominantly off-road and takes in the beautiful Warwickshire villages of Henley-in-Arden, Ullenhall, Studley, Alcester, Haselor, Aston Cantlow & Little Alne.
You are expected to bring, food, water, money and appropriate clothing as you would on any run. Budget up to 8 hours in total. Timings are approximate.
Trail shoes and long socks advised. All finishers receive a RunWithIan porcelain mug in white.
Cost = £35 per person including a RunWithIan porcelain mug for all finishers.
