Sunday 9th October
The Rushmoor Wellesley 10k is a fantastic, flat, trail race, using the beautiful Wellesley Woodlands and Basingstoke canal towpath. The course is mostly on maintained paths, but with a short, more challenging section in the woodlands. Through the woodlands the paths wind in and out between mature trees. Along the canal you can enjoy nature and see some very unique military bridges. The run starts on the Polo fields in Aldershot and finishes in the Army Rugby Stadium where you can ring the P.B. bell …… but only if you’ve earned it!!
Included in the 10k entry fee
Scenic route – Almost flat course, well signposted, and with plenty of friendly marshals to keep you on the right path.
Chip timing – With backup timing at the finish to ensure that you get a time.
Ultra wide start line – Everyone will start at or very near the front.
Bespoke collectable medal – unique double-sided medal for everyone awarded at the finish. Each year, one side of the medal will depict a different Aldershot landmark. Keep entering (and finishing!) the race to keep collecting!
