Westbury Wipeout – Monday 9th July 2012

20 May

Westbury Harriers will host the Westbury Wipe-Out on Monday 9th July 2012 in Blaise Castle commencing at 7.00 p.m. The Westbury Wipeout is a challenging multi terrain adventure run for juniors age 8 to 15, taking them on a tour of the woods, streams and hills of the Blaise Castle Estate. The event is 3k long (2k for 8 and 9 year-olds), and includes a long downhill section, some scrambling up banks and slopes, and plenty of splashing through water and across mud, rocks, roots and steps. The course is only lightly marked. Survivors will have to overcome the ‘Decent of Doom’, ‘Shark Lagoon’, ‘Ditch of Destruction’, ‘Crocs Leap’, ‘Hills of Torment’, ‘Festering Fords’, ‘Trolls Bridge’ and ‘Satans’ Scramble’.   

As a fun run, the event will not be timed. The emphasis is on adventure and challenge, and participants are advised that, once they start, the only way out is on their own two feet ! All participants will receive a T shirt printed especially for the event.  Please collect this, together with ‘Instructions for Participants’ and ‘Water Safety Leaflet’, at least 15 minutes before the start of the run.

The British and Irish Junior Fell Running Champion, who does much of his training in Blaise Castle, will be along to act as ‘Hare’ for the run, and to greet the runners as they finish.
