A new event for 2017 to replace our Glastonbury Tor Dash on New Year's Eve. What better way to start the end of year festivities with a lovely run in beautiful surroundings. An off road run of approximately 5.5 miles taking in the lovely Piercefield Park and a section of the Wye Valley Walk between Tintern and Chepstow.

The HQ is based at Chepstow Leisure Centre with ample car parking, showers and toilets. The start is 300m level walk from the centre, within the grounds of Piercefield Park. The route takes in the best features of the park and some sections of the Wye Valley walk, affording great views of the Wye itself. The finish is within the grounds of the Leisure Centre where our usual inclusive hot drinks and cakes await inside (and hot showers if you wish).

Like all our races we will have chip timing. We project live results onto a screen and you can see your time, category position and the results of your friends straight after you finish.

One of the many places on the route to catch a view of the Wye River below.

The route starts off running through the lovely Piercefield Park, a grade 1 listed historic landscape, next to Chepstow racecourse. In this photo you can just about make out what remains of the former grand house and stables. In the distance you can see the rock ramparts of Wintor's Leap.

The route passes a number of interesting features and goes through Giant's Cave.
