Stonehenge To Avebury Trekathon (June 2014)
Jun 28 2014
The organisers say:
“The magnificent prehistoric stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury need little introduction. We start at the legendary icon of Stonehenge, the most famous stone circle in the world.
From here we cross into MOD land, walking through beautiful areas little-used by the general public and a haven for wildlife and plants. We cross spectacular chalk downs dotted with ancient earth-works, burial mounds and enigmatic white horses carved into the chalk. Our route takes in the highest point in Wiltshire (295m) and goes through the most active crop circle area in the world, so keep your eyes peeled! We then head towards the famous ancient landmark of Silbury Hill, before finishing at Avebury, where we can get up close to the ancient stones. This is a tough event over the high chalk downs and ridgeways of Wiltshire and Salisbury Plain. At 26 miles, it forms an enormous challenge for walkers. There will be full support throughout the challenge with marshals and water stops along the route.”
