This is the ninth running of the Leatherhead Rotary Trail 10K, run for the forth time in early May to capture the delights of the Bluebell carpeted woodland on Headley Heath near Leatherhead, Surrey, an area of ourstanding beauty managed by the National Trust.
It route weaves in and out of the pathways through the heathland, returning to the start area a couple of times making it great for spectators.
The course is undulating (with one hill on each lap) featuring pleasant open heathland as well as narrow woodland paths. There are spectacular views, and, of course, at this time of year the carpet of bluebells.
As in previous years all profits made by Leatherhead Rotary will be donated to their designated charity and for 2016 it is Alzheimer' Society.
2:09 events are the race organisers on behalf of Rotary Club of Leatherhead and details can be found at:
I'd read about the Leatherhead Rotary Run because of the scenic run through the bluebells. I got there early, as it was advised there was limited parking on site and also limited toilet availability. The route itself was very scenic but also a hard lesson in trail running for me, as I picked up an injury around 6K. It's quite hilly early on in the course so I would advise this to be for more experienced trail runners.
