NEIL Miller reports that entries for the 2019 TrustFord Westbury Wipeout are already flooding in – even though today was the official launch.
“We have been open for three hours, during which more than 100 of the 350 paces have been taken,” said Miller on the club web page.
This popular event is scheduled for Monday July 1st with registration at the Harriers clubhouse in Blaise Castle from 6pm with a briefing at 7.15pm.
The event is geared towards young athletes and reading the blurb on the Harriers race page it is easier to see why it attracts a huge turn-out.
‘The Trustford Westbury Wipeout is a challenging multi-terrain adventure run for juniors aged between eight and 15, taking them on a tour of the woods, streams and hills of the Blaise Castle Estate.
‘The event is 3k (2k for eight- and nine-year-olds) and includes a long downhill section, some scrambling up banks and slopes, and plenty of splashing through water and across mud, rocks, roots and steps. The course is fully marshalled.
