We are so excited to be able to introduce The Ridgeway Run Virtual 10, a Oxfordshire/Wiltshire pop up trail running event joining forces with our friends at Blended Trails. (www.blendedtrails.co.uk) The route will be way marked from sunrise Saturday October 3rd – sunset Sunday 11 October 2020.
As this is our 5th year we had planned on a slightly more personal celebration with you all to show our appreciation for the continued support you have given us. For 2020 this is our virtual thank you! Sadly no Marshall’s, jelly babies or chaotic mad shouting and screaming of excitement, but we will be supporting you albeit virtually!
The route is called Blended Trails – The Ridgeway Run – Virtual Race

Emma McIntosh & Patricia Cleverley founded the Ridgeway Run in 2016. Best friends, keen runners, running has always been the perfect excuse to catch up, keep fit and run the dogs; having both run their share of events ranging from 5km to 100km in the UK & Overseas. Our vision has always been to provide a local event for local causes, sharing with fellow runners the beautiful and it has to be mentioned hilly Ridgeway and surrounding footpaths. Overtime we have forged lasting relationships with runners, local communities, landowners and some fantastic people who have volunteered their time to marshal and be part of the team. Created for everyone, the hare and the tortoise.
Blended Trails was set up by Ollie Steele-Perkins during lockdown with the first Pop Up event in May 2020.
Ollie, a long time runner of many distances and terrains has always had a love of adventure and the outdoors and wanted to share the runs he’s done in his home county of Hampshire. Blended Trails is a free trail running community with some very cool merchandise……who doesn’t want a new running t-shirt! Ollie’s successful Pop Ups on Strava have been a huge success and his plans are to roll them out throughout Berkshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire.
