Lacock Road Races
This is a fully closed road event taking in the tranquil and picturesque lanes of the Wiltshire countryside and the historic streets of Lacock itself. It is an ideal race for the first time runner, and you can expect to post a good time on this flat course. The route heads out of town and over some lovely stone bridges over the river Avon. Beautiful country roads wind round to the hamlet of Reybridge, with lovely thatched roofed buildings lining the narrow streets. Half marathon, 10k, 5k, and 1k family fun run events.
