Forest of Dean Spring Trails Half Marathon 2018
Forest of Dean Half Marathon event Spring 2018. This is a very well supported even that is held in the Spring and Autumn. The Forest of Dean has got to be the most beautiful place to hold a marathon event.
There is a website available that will give you all the information you need to participate. Then again, some folk, like myself, are more the “observer” type. My running years are behind me. Well, for something as far as that, anyway.
Forest of Dean Marathon; Race Overview
This Spring Trails Half Marathon is run in the Forest of Dean at the end of March, using the same organization (but a different course) as the Autumn event. Starting on the road adjacent to the Speech House Hotel in the heart of the forest, the course then leaves the road to follow a loop of well maintained forest trails (with gentle inclines) before eventually leading back to the Speech House Hotel for the finish.
This annual event is organised by The Rotary Club of the Royal Forest of Dean and supported by the Forestry Commission. Proceeds are used to support charities, both locally and nationally.
We are very grateful for the involvement and support of a host of individual volunteers, together with a number of local organisations who make this event successful; including the Forestry Commission, the Speech House Hotel and the Forest of Dean Motor Club.
