Like the majority of runners, I love taking part in organised events and races. In my opinion, nothing beats the feeling of crossing the finish line of a race.
Last week, I received some information about a new event called the Ciderthon. As a cider lover, I was incredibly disappointed when I realised that I had already entered a 10k race on the same day.
The Ciderthon is a half marathon with a cider taster at every mile and will take place on Sunday 29th April in Wells, Somerset.
The event will be showcasing local ciders, raising money for Dorset and Somerset air ambulance while bringing runners from across the country to try a new challenge.
The Ciderthon starts at 11am and has a cut-off time of 5pm.
The route is one lap starting and finishing in Wells Market Place, Somerset. The route is undulating and multi-terrain with a bias towards road.
The Ciderthon is an untimed run, however, the roads will be closed and there will be stewards to support participants until the last runner goes past.
The event will be showcasing local ciders – I’ve checked out the website and the ciders that will be on offer look amazing.
