The world famous Cheddar Gorge hosts one of the toughest races in south-west england - just getting to the start is tricky as it starts on the top of a gorge. The location is family friendly and if the weather is nice many pic nic on Strawberry Fields whilst enjoying proceedings.
The Cheddar Gorge half and marathon races are steep in places and steeper elsewhere! An ever changing terrain that takes in a 'cheeky' flight of steps aptly named 'Hells Steps'. Ironically there is a downhill finish as runners whizz back down the gorge. Off road shoes are highly recommended!
