The Wiltshire 10

Due to the adverse weather conditions forecast for the South of England on Sunday 9th February, the 2020 edition of the Wiltshire 10 Road Race has been cancelled.

Runners entered into the 2020 Wiltshire 10 have been automatically  entered into the Virtual Wiltshire 10 run and will each recieve a 'bustard' medal. See below for more details.

The Wiltshire 10 is a road race starting from the King George V Playing Fields in Melksham over a certified Ten Mile course. The route follows a gently undulating course through rural Wiltshire and loops around the historic village of Lacock before following the River Avon back to the finish in Melksham. The course is capable of producing fast times with the current course records being 49:34 (Daniel Studley of Bristol & West AC in 2017) and 56:18 (Jenny Spink of Bristol & West AC in 2016).

A map of the course can be found here.

Note: Some sections of the course are prone to flooding and so the route has been designed with a degree of contingency should this occur, utilising the raised walkways on the River Avon crossings in Lacock and also a certified accurate diversion for the section alongside the River Avon in Melksham.
