Newent 9 - Sunday 21st November 2021

Registration took place for the Newent 9 at the Community School on a crisp, sunny day and was
superbly organised and marshalled by Newent Runners. The course started with a lap of the playing field before heading out onto very undulating quiet country roads to the south of Newent.

The route took runners along the road dubbed the longest cul-de-sac in Europe. Some runners arrived at the event thinking it was 9 miles but, much to their relief, it was only 9k (9.5k to be precise but it doesn’t have the same ring to it!!) I finished in a time of 48:53 and was 2nd FV60.
