This event, originally named after our first sponsors (Roman Motors), started life as a 9 mile road race in 1968 although only much later did it become an annual race. During the 1980s and 1990s it established itself as a very popular event on the road racing calendar during what is traditionally a quiet time for races.
In 2004 it was necessary to change our host venue and we were pleased to be able to use the facilities at FISSC, Knights Lane, Tiddington, Stratford upon Avon (the Sports and Social Club of the NFU Mutual Insurance Society Ltd). Although the route remains predominantly the same the change to the Start and Finish meant a re-measuring of the course. This is why the distance is a slightly unusual 12k (ideal for PBs!) and also explains the new name of the race.
Since 2009 we have been sponsored by SimplyRun www.simplyrun.co.uk and their continued support is much appreciated.Due to limited parking facilities, and for safety considerations on the course, there is a race limit of 800 with no entries on the day. The success of the race is such that the entry limit has been reached in each of the past 5 years and you are advised to enter early to secure your place. In 2011 we successfully introduced chip timing which we see as being a feature that is increasingly valued by runners. As a consequence of this change please note that no information will be sent out in advance and race numbers and your chip will be available for collection on the day.
