What better way to start your 2017 running programme than the Moreton Morrell Mad Dash? A great friendly, local race set in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. Starting at the Moreton Morrell Centre, Warwickshire College, the 10km is completed in one gently undulating lap, and the 20km in two.
Runners leave the college via John Davies Drive, a lovely long downhill. The route then winds its way through the country lanes to the picturesque village of Ashorne, passing the drinks station at 5km. There is a climb at 6km after which the route is fairly flat until 9km. Here the competitors run back up John Davies Drive and into the college grounds where the 10km finishes and the 20km runners head out for another lap.
All competitors will receive a finishers medal and prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd & 3rd male & female. All 1st male & female 10 year age group winners will receive a free entry into next years event.
10km and 20km start in two separate places, with the 20km runners going off first at 10:00 and the 10km at 10:02
Opens at 8am and close at 9.15am
