A run past the Tysoe Windmill at this picturesque 10K

Come out on top at the Tysoe Windmill Run

A week to go to this picture-postcard race in the South Warwickshire countryside.

One way to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is to run up Windmill Hill followed by more climbing in the Cotswolds at this visually appealing 10K and 5K. On Sunday 4 June participants will tackle these delights at the Tysoe Windmill Run.

If there was a prize for the prettiest 10K then this event would be a strong contender due to its course which poses a challenge in a charming location. Runners and walkers complete the mainly off-road route around the village of Tysoe – enjoying the views as they make their way up and down this setting followed by restorative tea and cake.  

Starting at 10am, participants can look forward to fields, hills, wood copses, footpaths and some road plus the 180m high and impressive Tysoe Windmill, built in the early 18th Century. This route includes the private Compton Wynyates Estate to which access has been granted solely for this race. 

The 5K run goes up Windmill Hill then back down again and the walkers do the same but at a slower pace, giving them time to appreciate their surroundings and maybe take the odd photo or two.

Whilst this is a picturesque run it is also a race for all ages and there are prizes for the winning man and lady and the first under-14 boy and girl. Every finisher gets a medal.   

Entries close for the Tysoe Windmill Run on Friday 3 June so there is still time to register but don’t leave it too long.     

Fingers crossed for lovely, warm sunny weather on the day, which will enhance this route even further.
