Coming up to the 6th year of its regeneration, and its 30th running, the Offa’s Dyke 15 is back in 2020.
In case you missed the history first time around, for 25 years between the years 1977 and 2001 it was THE off-road race to do, with runners coming from all over the country (and abroad) to complete this beautiful but challenging race. Foot and mouth caused its cancellation in 2002 and following this the race organisers were unable to get momentum back to re-start this popular race.
In 2015 we had the help of David Joyce, the original Race Director to get it re-launched, and we are delighted to say it didn’t put him off and he is back with us, we couldn’t do it without him.
Whilst it broadly follows the Offa’s Dyke Path, one of the quirks of this unique race is that to reduce the number of stiles runners must navigate, David has once again gained permission of every farmer/land owner to have the race go through their land and open their gates.
2020 Event Open For Entry
Entries for the 2020 edition of Offa’s Dyke are officially open. Book your place on the start line in Hay-on-Wye and come and experience this legendary race.
