White Star Running’s flagship event weekend returns and as always is so popular, a large waiting list already exists. Winning several awards for Britain’s Best Marathon over the years, it’s easy to see why runners love the feel of this event. Taking over the village of Sydling St Nicholas, the villagers welcome runners making them part of the community for the weekend.
This event weekend provides something for all the family, with 2 tough races on Saturday, a barn dance in the village hall for those that can still walk on Saturday evening and then a choice of 2 distances for the fun Bell races on Sunday. Where anyone can take on the run to reach the top of the hill and do a task set by team at the top. Then, run down the hill with your medal clonking away like a proper Alpine Cow.
Both race routes are very, very challenging hilly course’s, running through the Sydling and Cerne valleys. It is certainly not for the faint hearted, it is a tough race, with some steep climbs, sharp descents and the most amazing views to reward yourself with. If you’re not sure what to expect, here’s a race review to help you get a feel for the race.
Both races Sold out and operating waiting lists, Bell races will open in April.
