Give It Some Welly Next Spring
Three distances to choose from at this springtime trail event...
After a successful inaugural event earlier this year, the Welly Trail will return to Northamptonshire in the spring of 2024. Set to take place on 25 February, the race, which is organised by Northamptonshire Sport, offers runners the choice of 7 Mile, Half Marathon and 20 Mile distances.
The event is held at the Chester House Estate in Little Irchester, Wellingborough - a nationally important heritage site. Archaeological digs have uncovered a Northamptonshire history that goes back more than 10,000 years making it a very interesting place to visit.
Taking in trails and paths around the Wellingborough area, the route is beautiful and relatively flat with some amazing views of the local countryside. It is an exciting race where those participating must plan and be prepared. Key navigation points will be marked, but runners must download the maps – the challenge is finding your way around the course!
Participants will be pleased to hear that parking is free at the Chester House Estate, which is always a bonus. Water will be available on course although organisers ask that if you are able, you bring your own water bottle or cup. After the race each finisher will receive a hot drink and warm food.
