Hungerford Harey 8 Mile – Sunday 1st of July 2018

With high temperatures and baking, sweaty conditions, Newbury AC had a strong turnout at the fourth and final race in the Run West Berkshire series of races.

The 8 mile course of the Hungerford Harey 8, professionally delivered by the Hungerford Hares, the race began at 10.30am with a route which saw runners traverse through rolling terrain, dry and narrow tracks through fields and long, slow rises.  The end of the route had a sting in its tail with the now-famous and seemingly never-ending final loop around the Hungerford Rugby Club pitches.
