Sign up for Sarsen Trail
THIS year is the 25th anniversary of the Sarsen Trial and Neolithic Marathon, and registration is now open.
The event, in aid of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, is open to runners, walkers and cyclists and offers a choice of seven, 11, 15 and 26-mile routes through the Wiltshire countryside, starting and ending at Stonehenge.
“This is a rare opportunity for people to access an area which is usually closed to the public and to enjoy this spectacular landscape,” said Sarsen Trail coordinator Derek Gard.
“I am also pleased to say that we have been given permission to take this year’s cycling route through Salisbury Plain. We had over 2,300 people taking part last year and I expect this year will be no exception. The marathon places are limited and in our 25th year we expect a record attendance, so I urge people to sign on as soon as possible.”
The event takes place on Sunday, May 5.
Entry fees cover the trust’s costs for organising the event and more funds can be raised for Wiltshire Wildlife Trust through individual sponsorship.
Participants are asked to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship. Sponsorship forms can be downloaded at wiltshirewildlife.org.
