The Wiltshire 10 comes to Melksham on 16th February.

IF you are looking to start the New Year with a challenge of your fitness then the Wiltshire 10-mile run takes place on Sunday 16th February. 

The event which starts from King George V Playing Fields in Melksham takes runners on a course through the heart of rural Wiltshire and around the historic village of Lacock before finishing back alongside the River Avon in Melksham town park.

The run makes ideal preparation for those aiming to compete in the Bath Half Marathon or the London Marathon later in the spring, though for many completing a 10-mile run is a goal in itself which will be rewarded with a race memento on crossing the finishing line. At the sharp end the certified accurate course has a record time of 52-minutes 14-seconds which was set at last year’s event,  and also saw victory by Team Bath in the team race of four men and Avon Valley Runners with three ladies.

Once again the event is sponsored by The Wiltshire Times and full details of the event, including online entry can be found at www.stampedesports.co.uk.
