Minster Milers' Mash 10K 2019
30 June 2019
THE MINSTER MILERS' MASH 10k IS NOW FULLY SUBSCRIBED! The race is limited to 200 entrants and a waiting list is now open in case we lose some participants. A welcome email will be sent to all participants in the next week and the Minster Milers look forward to welcoming you on Sunday 30th June 2019 for a 10a.m. start. This will be a fun yet demanding course for all abilities around the historic market town of Ilminster and the surrounding area, including the stunning private estate of Dillington House.
The measured, multi-terrain course will start and end at the Archie Gooch Pavilion, Canal Way, Ilminster and is mainly on road and rolling country lanes: there is just 2.4km (1.5 miles) on playing fields (short grass), farm track and across a field edge. Starting from the Pavilion playing field beneath Herne Hill the first half mile climbs up Britten's Field and out of Ilminster before joining the public road for a gentle climb towards Kingstone. Turning left back toward Ilminster there is a descent on a wider road leading to a farm track before crossing the Ilminster to Seavington road. Runners then follow a field-side track before taking to the private tarmac roads of Dillington Estate (with some cattle grids to negotiate!). You are then greeted by the beautiful Dillington House as your backdrop before taking a path up and out of the Estate to the Ilminster Beacon, the highest point on the route. Heading downhill you will arrive back in Ilminster town centre, again taking to footpaths and roads through the town before winding your way along Canal Way and returning to the finishing line at the Archie Gooch Pavilion.
There will be a first aid and water station at approximately 4.5km and the route will be fully distance marked in addition to marshals at key points along the route.
