MINSTER MILERS' MASH 10K
This is an undulating course that takes in the beautiful South Somerset countryside including the magnificent backdrop of the Dillington Estate finishing through the historic Ilminster Town Square.
Partnering with Ferne Animal Sanctuary this is a truly community based event that supports and is supported by local businesses.
After the success of the previous event the Mash is back and bigger with an extra 150 places to take us to a limit of 350 entrants. Book early to avoid disappointment as we expect to sell out.
The Minster Milers look forward to welcoming you on Sunday 7th April for a 10am start.
The multi-terrain course will start and end at the Archie Gooch Pavilion, Canal Way, Ilminster and is mainly on road and rolling country lanes: there is just 2.4km (1.5 miles) on playing fields (short grass), farm track and across a field edge. Starting from the Pavilion playing field beneath Herne Hill the first half mile climbs up Britten's Field and out of Ilminster before joining the public road for a gentle climb towards Kingstone. Turning left back towards Ilminster there is a descent on a wider road leading to a farm track before crossing the Ilminster to Seavington road. Runners then follow a field-side track before taking to the private tarmac roads of Dillington Estate (with some cattle grids to negotiate!). You are then greeted by the beautiful Dillington House as your backdrop before taking a path up and out of the Estate to the Ilminster Beacon, the highest point on the route. Heading downhill you will arrive back in Ilminster town centre, again taking to footpaths and roads through the town before winding your way along Canal Way and returning to the finishing line at the Archie Gooch Pavilion.
There will be a first aid and water station at approximately 4.5km and the route will be fully distance marked in addition to marshals at key points along the route.
