Bank Holiday Monday 26th August - Winchcombe to Old Pats social run

It's our social long-run-followed-by-a-buffet day.

A 15, 11 or 6 mile run along the Cotswold Way, from Winchcombe for the longest run and with meeting points along the way for folk choosing the shorter distances.

The runs following the picturesque Cotswold way footpath over common land, woodland and country tracks linked by some short road sections. The Cotswold way is well marked with signposts and yellow arrows.

Meet at Old Pates rugby club to organise car shares to the start points.

The run is not marshalled and groups should elect leaders and sweepers.

The route is 95% off road and can be rough and muddy in places so off road running shoes are recommended as are windproof jacket, hat and gloves if the weather is poor. I also suggest carrying a drink in warm weather.
