Race to the Stones
Date:13 Jul 2019
Distance:100km
Type:MT
Comments:The third and final race of the Threshold Trail Series, this was a little flatter
than the first two but 8-9 miles longer. The course meandered it’s way west
from Lewknor, across the south of England to Avebury stone circle in
Wiltshire.

The weather was kind to us (the forecast sun barely ever showed up) and
the terrain varied from roads to deeply rutted trails. The “field of dreams” at
about 10 miles was a highlight, crops stretching out a mile in front of us in a
shallow valley.

The aid stations were well stocked with food, water and support, but 62
miles will eventually take its toll on you (unless you are Saeed Khan), and
by the time we ran around one of the Stones (at 98km) I was more
appreciative of the prospect of a sit down than of the history of the site.

I’d recommend it, either as a non-stop event or split over two days.
