Come on peeps! A lovely run up and down Leckhampton Hill!
Lots to keep the family entertained while you race too!
Plus I will be there...!
.but dont let that put you off!
Just that I posted about my race a few days ago and go no response either. Thought I would make sure you got at least one
See - we havent just made it up!
It has an exciting name because there is a rock feature called the Devil's Chimney on the side of the hill that you run up......
Ran the course this morning - and am now looking forward to the race
Its nice to get off the roads and enjoy the terrain, wild life (rabits,cows and snails) and beautiful views of Cheltenham.
I was surprised how gentle the ascent was.
Well certainly when compared to the way down - I guess its all relative!

Yep - Leckhampton hill has quite a population of roman snails - you dont see them on neighbouring Cleeve Hill. I believe you are supposed to have a license to handle them (or so they said on Springwatch a couple of weeks back).
Roger - yes the up is quite long, but the two main descents quite a bit steeper. Hoepfully we get yesterdays weather come race day - I was out with a couple of friends following a bit of the Cotswold Way and it was glorious at 8am.
Oii - you could do the race and just a 5 or 6 miler the next (or nest...) day? OR you could do the race then run home?
A beautiful run and a great way to spend a summers evening and guilt free pints of lager afterwards!
Still time to enter!!!
Im coming i hope there are spaces left to enter on the night!
I did this in 2009- coming down was awesome- a bit out of control!
Great race- really enjoyed it. Big thank you to the organisers, lots of marshalls on the course.
I thought the route would have bigger hills in it, I kept turning the corner expecting a massive hill but it was quite gradual. Not a complaint though, I thoroughly enjoyed the race, great support on the finishing field : )

glad you enjoyed it. THings went well on the whole....The one kids race was directed the wrong way so they ended up doing about 1/4 mile more...but they would have enjoyed it...and slept well that night!
