Summer Ranscombe 10th Anniversary!
Fingers crossed we hit the peak of the poppies at Ranscombe, we've been lucky on a couple of years and even the "bad" years tend to really pretty good and incredibly this a decade of Ranscombe events and Challenge events, the first ever Challenge Event was 2014!
We're just going to have one day at Ranscombe, the Saturday and we'll use the "Red Route" which is the slightly flatter, probably more flowers all being well, but it's all relative, will definately still quite hilly!
The medals will be a bit random, you'll be able to pick from the 2022 Ranscombe Series, the 2023 Ranscombe Series, some random SVN medals plus Rachel is working on some custom medals, which will all be individual for those who may have already got the 2022 and 2023 sets... all subject to availability of course.

There are hills, the North Downs Way crosses part of the reserve, and being totally on trail there is the chance of a bit of mud if its wet but the well stocked aid station, a unique custom made medal for each event and a goody bag (and if you do both events you'll get two of course) that actually contains goodies will make the undulations and any mud more than worth it. (But it is on chalk downlands so does drain pretty well!)
For this race we're the guests of the Ranscombe Farm Reserve, who exist to maintain this corner of England as a haven for wild flowers to flourish in. They are the flagship reserve for the charity Plantlife International, speaking up for wild plants!
It's our aim that this event makes an impactful difference to the Trust in a positive fashion and as such £5 from each entry fee will be donated directly to the Trust to aid them in maintaining this lovely environment.
Please explore the race and consider joining us!
