Cliveden 6 -x country race

by Sam Amend - 23rd January 2013 | General News

I love starting the new year with a challenge and this one really is with twisty turns, grassy/mud hills and those damm killer steps all 172 x 2 which you have to complete on a double circuit of the National Trust grounds.

One of my favourite races to do every year, would love it to be even longer but to treat myself for the WIN and a PB on the course  and  ran home and topped upto 17 miles!

Only 5 seconds of the course record which may have also been on a different route also.

Whats great is all the club teams/ locals come out to run this annual race that use to be held between Christmas and new year and poor weather has led to the groundsman pushing this to January.
