The Rushmoor Wellesley 10k is a fantastic, flat, trail race, using the award winning Wellesley Woodlands and Basingstoke canal towpath. The course is mostly on well maintained paths, but with a short, 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.
