Farleigh Wallop 10k Trail Race 29th September 2019

You may have come across Darrel May who for some time worked at Alton Sports and latterly was the CEP Rep for the South . He is a member of the relatively recently formed Hatch Warren Runners and the Race Director for the above race asking if there are any Southampton Athletic Club runners who would like to participate .

The race will start at 9.30a.m , the cost to affiliated runners is £17.00 and the course involves a real mixture of terrains to challenge. Farleigh Wallop is situated close to Basingstoke and the M3 and therefore easily accessible from the Southampton side.

An interesting feature is a King and Queen of the Hill with a £50 cash prize up for grabs.
