Goal Setting for 2021, The Bromyard Round the Downs Race

If you’re looking to set yourself a challenge in 2021 we’ve just received news that the Bromyard Round the Downs Race will be going ahead in June. That gives you plenty of time to get training and race fit.

The Bromyard Round the Downs road race is an historic and deceptively challenging event of just over 4 ½ miles. The first recorded race took place in 1923, but was quite possibly running long before then.

The route takes in some fantastic views on a clear day, west into Wales and North to the Clee Hills. How great does that sound?

As with all events planned for this year it will be subject to the latest Covid rules and regulations.
