Shires and Spires Northants Ultra 35, Marathon Half Marathon, 10K Naseby 2020
Saturday, May 16 2020, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
This year we have added two more events to create an amazing running festival in the beautiful Northamptonshire village of Naseby (home of the famous battle) with something for everyone. We have a road 10K, a multi-terrain half marathon, a multi-terrain marathon and the legendary Shires and Spires 35 mile Ultra Marathon. All races start at the same time at Naseby Village Hall and finish in the same place too making for easy race logistics. Everyone shares the first 3.3 miles before the races split into two - 10K and Half Marathon one way and Ultra and Marathon the other. This year is the first every clockwise edition which will challenge even the seasoned competitors.
The 10K takes you on quiet country roads from Naseby through to Haselbech and down a steep hill towards Cottesbrooke before turning back up towards Naseby with a challenging climb to the finish.
The Multi-Terrain Half Marathon follows the 10K route before turning off to the picturesque village of Guilsborough, past the Hollowell Reservoir. Its then on to the trails before reaching Thornby and then a cheekly climb back into Naseby.
If you are bored of road marathons but are not ready for your first Ultra but would like to experience some of the route then we present the multi terrain marathon. it follows a 26.6 mile loop taking in some of the Shires and Spires Ultra Route and of course amazing country houses and stunning countryside.
We also have the Northants 35 "Shires and Spires" Ultra Marathon Following s a 35 mile loop taking in some of the most interesting country houses and historical sites in England including Naseby, Althorp (home of the Spencer family), Cottesbrooke, evidently the house Jane Austen used as the basis for Mansfield Park as well as some stunning countryside.
All races are chip timed and benefit from checkpoints along the way with a selection of vegan friendly (and delicious too) sweets, cake, and fruit along with our enthusiastic marshal team.
