Club Trip to Salisbury 9th-11th August 2014

Every year the club organises a trip to Salisbury for the Salisbury 54321 trail races and walks.

This year's trip will take place from the 9th (Saturday) to the 11th of August (Monday).

The club organises a mini-bus and reserves camping spaces at a campsite near Salisbury, but you can make your own way there, and it's also up to you whether you want to camp one or two nights (or not at all!)

The general itinerary for the trip is as follows:

Saturday: Drive up to Salisbury and set up camp, go to a nearby pub for dinner.

Sunday: Run or walk your choice of event at the Salisbury 54321, afterwards return to the campsite for a BBQ.

Monday: Pack up camp and drive home.

Various preparation tactics were employed the day before the event...

And they're off!

Salisbury 54321 - Sun 10th August

You can choose from 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, 30k, Marathon, or 50k Ultra Marathon trail run or walk distances.

Starting and ending at Salisbury Fire Station, the routes follow footpaths and country roads around Salisbury, taking you past 5 rivers, 4 hills, 3 country estates, 2 castles and 1 cathedral along the way (hence the name).

All routes are way-marked and there are many checkpoints with water and food along the way. You will also be given a route description and map at the start.

Entry costs: Runners £17; Walkers £7; +£3 if entering on the day

Last year we had 5 Musketeers doing the Ultra, 12 the Marathon, 4 the 30k, 4 the Half and 2 people did the 30k walk.

Please let Bryan know if you are coming and how many nights you will be camping, so he can reserve enough camping spaces

*Mini-bus update: There are enough people for one mini-bus already. Bryan may organise another mini-bus if there is enough demand.*
