The Bewl 15 Mile

The 20th running of this popular 15 mile event. 
A Wadhurst Runners event, this race has been consistently voted one of the UK's best races. A challenging multi terrain race run around Bewl Water and through the lanes surrounding the reservoir, the course is challenging but immensely satisfying.
In addition to a bespoke medal, commemorative t shirt, goody bag and home made cakes at the finish, you'll be supported by the local brass band.

Nice Work are responsible for Chip Timing & Entry Management Services for the event.

The Course
The Start/Finish of the race is located a short walk from the Race HQ in Blacksmiths Lane. The race then takes you on a downhill section to Bewl Water and after covering a circuit you make your way back up the undulating lanes of Wadhurst back to the finish.

First Aid
St John Ambulance will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for. 
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.
