Just a heads up that the Forestry are removing a few dead wood tomorrow (Thursday), the Hill will be open as usual but please look out for Rangers in Hi-Viz and at times certain sections may be closed for a bit whilst the work is being carried out.
The weather played ball and racers were treated to dry and dusty conditions on the mash-up course which featured off-camber links between regular Aston Hill trails; it was even overheard as being described as
“the best Aston Hill track, ever”. Praise indeed!
Rather than write a report (especially as the full results are on
Gravity Project and Roots and Rain), feast your eyes on the video and pictures below – they tell a far better story. There’s also shots on the Aston Hill Flickr group – feel free to add more!
A huge shout must be given to
Gravity Project, Quality Catering, Vintage VW Smoothies and the hardworking medics, for keeping people timed, fed, watered and safe.
A massive hats off also needs to go to the race backbone: the marshals. They did a
sterling job at an incredibly busy race. Thank you very much guys!
All that remains is to say a massive,
massive thank you to the race sponsors, who provided amazing support and prizes:
Racing will return next March. Watch this space!

However, should you want to race
get yourself over to the Hill on Saturday afternoon or first thing Sunday, as there are still spaces left!
looking nothing short of perfect, there are more prizes from some fantastic companies than The Bearded One can fit in his cavernous, blacked-out estate – what’s your excuse not to?
