Wickstead Wander

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). ALL proceeds from this race to the R.D.A; so with a record number of entrants we are pleased to announce we donated 1,200 to the charity.

 

Highworth 5 mile - date set

On Sun 8th April we will be holding our popular 5 mile race for the 33rd time and Online entries are NOW OPEN!!
