All Trails Lead To Roman Chedworth


A legion of more than 400 runners took on the challenging Chedworth Roman Trail 10 on Sunday (9 April). The multi-terrain 10-miler attracted a good mix of human and canine entrants on a very hot day in the Cotswolds.

It was the 19th outing for the race, which started at Chedworth Village Hall and followed a one-lap course on tracks, footpaths and fields, including a river crossing. Runners went through scenic countryside, passing near the Chedworth Roman Villa.

Host club Cirencester AC took the top spot in the women’s race with Holly Tugwell winning in 1:12:37. Charlotte Everard of Spa Striders followed her in 1:14:23 with Gemma Hargraves of Almost Athletes third in 1:14:53. Jack Turner of Stroud & District AC was first across the line in 1:03:14. James Thomas of host club Cirencester AC was second in 1:04:24 with James Everett of Dursley RC coming third in 1:04:29. 
Terry Whitson was the midpoint runner in 1:36:38. Kim Mazzucca and her four-legged friend from Forest of Dean Canicross were the fastest duo in 1:14:28. 
The race remains popular with local running clubs with several including it in their off-road series.
