9 miles multi-terrain - NB check race website for start time
Pithay near St Mary’s Church, Thornbury
The Riverbank Rollick is 9 miles long with 120m of ascent and is 80 per cent off-road, on trails, bridle paths, across fields and through woodland.
It starts at the Pithay near St Mary’s Church, Thornbury, and goes out to St Arilda’s Church at Oldbury, down to the scenic Severn Riverbank, turning left along the estuary for about 1.5 miles past Whale Wharf with views of the Bridge and Chepstow. It heads back through the village of Littleton Upon Severn and beside Thornbury Golf course to return to the Playing Fields.
The course offers different terrains, different places, different views… and is probably different to anything you’ve tried before. Challenging too, but very rewarding.
