Rotherwas Course

The new course is a 2.2 mile loop using the footpaths and permitted routes at Rotherwas. You will start next to the historic shell store which opened a hundred years ago, run down the track and then turn right and follow the river Wye.  After a mile you’ll turn right and right again and follow the copse and fence which surround the munitions site. You are able to practice on the route at any point but please don’t try and access the munitions site as it’s full of asbestos and unexploded shells……..

Parking and directions

The race will start and finish next to the cycle path at the shell store. If you live in the city please cycle or walk/jog there using the new greenway bridge which starts in Outfall Works Road off St James/Eign Hill.  Follow the path over the bridge, past the statues and under the railway line. Cross the road and the HQ will be in front of you. There are secure bicycle stores and plenty of fencing where bikes can be locked.

If you are coming by car please share lifts as parking is limited. We have permission for you to park at two businesses and we are grateful for their support:
