Entries have opened for the inaugural Oundle 20 Mile Road Race on Sunday 4 March 2018. This will be a good test of fitness for any runner preparing for a spring marathon.
The race will start at 9.30am from Oundle Primary School, Oundle in Northamptonshire. Runners will follow a picturesque, mildly undulating route on quiet country lanes with several aid stations along the way to keep everyone fuelled and hydrated. They will pass through four villages before heading towards the finish at the school and the relative flatness of the course means a high chance of a PB.
There is a generous prize list for the first, second and third man and lady as well as age category winners. Every finisher will receive a custom-made medal and a long sleeved technical t-shirt. Refreshments will be available at Oundle Primary School.
This is the second race at this distance from Sussex based organisers Nice Work and joins the Brett Lydd 20 taking place the week after. Nice Work organise races of varying distances from 1 mile to marathon and of all sizes, from small community events to large affairs for clubs, local authorities and charities. They also provide complimentary services including event timing and race/entry management.
Oundle is a historic town situated on the River Nene that is famous for its limestone buildings, heritage trail and cultural events. Oundle is nestled amongst the Northamptonshire countryside making it an ideal location for an early season 20-miler in the build up to London, Brighton, Manchester and other spring marathons.
