Live Results - Well done to all runners

Have a look at our description of the route which explains all the lovely twists and turns that you will take. We try not to mention all the hills (there aren't really any), just the odd slope! When planning the route our aim was to find a flat, really fast course, however this proved a little difficult, but come and have a look.
No headphones allowed
We take great pride in our 40 marshals who will encourage you along the route. We provide three drink stations, and no doubt you will be offered some jelly babies to eat as you run.
Chip timing supplied by DBMax
Great Hinton
This half marathon, now in its third, fourth, fifth year, takes you along quiet country lanes and the beautiful picturesque villages of Edington, Steeple Ashton and Great Hinton.

The Battle of Edington

In 878 AD King Alfred the Great's Saxon army fought and defeated Guthrum's Danish Army 'Great Heathen Army' at Edington. It is possible the the first Westbury White Horse was carved into the chalk hillside to celebrate this victory. The present White Horse was recreated in the year 1778.

 

We have tried to anticipate all your questions but if you would like to know more don't hesitate to ask us.
