Hungerford Harey 8

Sunday, 12 June 2022

Join us for a fantastic multi-terrain 8 mile race around Hungerford and surrounding countryside. Organised by the Hungerford Hares Running Club starting at 10.00 am on Sunday, 12 June 2022.

Starting and finishing at Hungerford Rugby Club, the route takes runners around a loop of the Triangle Field before heading out towards the common. There, runners will be directed on a course taking in the beautiful Port Down Common before descending gently towards Templeton/Trinity Stud. It then follows a circular route around footpaths providing stunning views of Combe and of the countryside before returning via the common.

There will be a special memento for the finishers and unique trophies for the winners of the fastest runners; male and female and within age categories.

The race is part of 'Run West Berks', a series of four races taking place locally in April, May and June 2022. For more information see www.runwestberks.net.

This year our running club is raising funds for the local charity, Berkshire Youth.
