Wickstead Wander - provisional results

On a balmy Autumnal morning in north Wiltshire, a record number of runners descended on Highworth to compete in the ninth edition of our popular Wickstead Wander. As ever, it was pleasing to see so many entrants don fancy dress for the race, with outfits ranging from a dinosaur, a Scooby Doo, an Oompa-loompa, numerous Super heroes to a dozen Marilyn Monroe's (from RWBH).

As the route takes in part of the Wickstead Equestrian Centre we donate ALL proceeds from this race to the R.D.A; so with a record number of entrants we are hoping to provide them with a bumper cheque in the coming weeks.

Provisional results are now available; please direct any queries to highworthrunningclub@gmail.com.
