Not long now until the British Middle Championships take place in Stockhill near Wells in Somerset!
As the final preparations are underway, event planner, Ben Chesters, has given us some insight on what to expect when competing in the forest!
"After months of preparation, it’s nearly time for the 2018 British Middle Championships. We have an excellent new map of this challenging area, and courses planned to give you all plenty to think about. The forest boasts some fine detail as well as vague areas, and there is even a section of open land thrown in for variety. With the competition taking place in a reasonably compact area, you will need to concentrate hard to avoid distractions and make the best route choices for you. The weather looks like it could be good for running (and parking!)! We look forward to welcoming you to Stockhill."
The British Middle Championships will follow the Sprint Championships on Sunday (2nd September) at Stock Hill near Wells in Somerset. More information can be found on the British Middle Championships website.
Good luck to everyone competing!
