EVENT INTRODUCTION & NOTES

Folllowing on from the success of the first two years, The Stanton Stile Hop races will take place once again in 2020!!

We will be holding a free 2 km fun run for children for under 9 year olds. This will take part on a flat field and will be a 2000mtr out and back course. There will be no entry fee for the 2km run, instead we would kindly ask for donations to be made to our chosen charity for 2020.

The 5km ‘The Stanton Stile Hop’ is the race that started it all off in 2018. This stunning course will take runners on a 5km loop from the centre of Stanton village on a mixture of terrain from beautiful fileds to stunning woodland trails with a few quiet country lanes. As the event name implies, there are number of stiles on the course which all runners will need to climb over as part of the event. The course itself has a steady rise to the half way point with the exception of the wooded climb, the course then starts to make its way back down towards the finish line in Stanton

The 10km multi terrain race is a beautiful extension of the 5km route. At the 4km way point of the 5km route, you will be diverted off on to an additional 5km section where you will re-join the original 5km route for the final section back into the finish in Stanton. Again, the route is mostly on a mixture of field, woodland and farm track with a little bit of quiet country lane.
Both the 5km and 10km race will be started in the same location.

Runners of all abilities are very welcome. The 5km has an age restriction of 9 years and older and we ask that all children under 12 years old are within arm’s reach of an accompanying adult throughout the race.

The 10km race has an age restriction of 16 years and older.

(where the child is 16 by or on the 30th May, 2020)
