Gezien de winnende tijd van Thomas Payn in 2015 van 8.20 is dit een niet al te lastig parcours. De route loopt grotendeels over het Ridgway Path en finisht bij de Avenbury Stone Circle. Startplaats Chinnor ligt op 1 uur ten noord wedsten van Londen.
Breathtaking scenery, millennia of history, teamwork and determination. The Dixons Carphone Race to the Stones is a celebration of all that makes Britain great.
At Threshold we love Britain. It has some of the most incredible scenery in the world and humans have been criss-crossing the hills and valleys of this island for thousands of years before anyone reading this was born. We wanted a challenge that went back to basics.
A breathtakingly beautiful challenge through 5,000 years of history
The Ridgeway is recognised as the oldest path in the UK. Along itís length you will find traces of generations stretching back over 5,000 years. It is lined with Bronze Age hill forts, neolithic burial chambers, Roman river crossings and culminates in the largest neolithic stone circle complex in Europe at Avebury. When you travel its length you can understand why people have trodden this path for so long. It is truly beautiful.
The route passes up and along the high ground South West from Lewknor in Oxfordshire to the Thames crossing at Goring. From this point the route rises up onto the North Wessex Downs passing golden fields of wheat before the iconic finish where you will walk between the towering standing stones of Avebury. It is also one of the most accessible long distance routes as it is just over an hour outside London and so the challenge you can focus on is the 100km, not a 9-hour drive to the middle of nowhere to get there!
Unlike some ĎUltrasí which are about self sufficiency, we look after everything so you just need to concentrate on enjoying the view as you get to the finish line.
