RUNNERS, walkers, cyclists and dog walkers are invited to sign up for this year’s Sarsen Trail by Monday (May 14).

The Wiltshire Wildlife Trust event sees a range of long and short-distance trails across Salisbury Plain, including the Neolithic marathon beginning at Avebury Stone Circle.

An estimated 2,000 people are set to take part in the event on Sunday, May 27.

Race organiser Derek Gard said: “We’ve had a great sign up levels so far but we are still keen to get more participants to sign up.

“The Sarsen Trail is a great way for people to get active in Wiltshire, a chance to get together with friends or to challenge yourself with one of the long distance routes.

“Whether you are a seasoned runner or a family group, there are walks, runs and cycle rides for all abilities, so why not get involved and see parts of Salisbury Plain that aren’t usually open to the public in the process?”

The routes are fully stewarded with first aid cover and support vehicles and a free coach service is offered for walkers between the starting and finishing points.

The charity provides regular water and toilet stops with refreshments available along the route.

All participants who cross the finish line at Old Carter Barracks, near Bulford, receive free refreshments and a medal.

Event options include a full and half marathon, a range of walks from seven to 26 miles, two circular mountain bike routes of 30 or 50km, dog walks and a 5km or 10km fun run.
