For this edition we look back at our first ever race offering to the running community…
The inaugural Shrewton Bustard 10k was a fun packed day for everyone; there was an awesome atmosphere at the start line as we signalled for for The Great Bustard Group to count down the start and get the runners going with a proper gun start. Running Clubs had travelled from all across Wiltshire and even beyond, gathering for team photos in the perfect pre-race weather. We all had a lot of fun that day and delight in the fact that people still talk about it today.
After the success of our Yarnbury Yomp 10k race and the connection we have with the Great Bustard Group, plans were put into action for a Sunday morning run on Salisbury Plain to see the Great Bustards “in the feather” so to speak.
The day arrived with not a single cloud in the crystal blue sky; a slight easterly breeze reminded you winter had not yet closed its doors.
