All change at the helm

All change at the helmAfter six successful years at the helm of The Sodbury Slog, race director Steve Herring is standing down in 2020. I’m sure everyone would like to extend a huge thank you to Steve for all his hard work over the years he has worked hard for the event.

His replacement at the controls going forward is Ira Rainey. Having been a Bitton Road Runner member for 15 years, as well as having run the race six or seven times (lost track of exactly how many in the depths of time), and being involved in the race one way or another for a number of years (most recently talking rubbish at the finish line), we think the event will be safe in his hands.

The event is of course much bigger than any single person and the whole thing could not happen without the support of the hundreds of volunteers and partners who help make sure it all comes together on the day, both out on the route on the day and behind the scenes. The Sodbury Slog really is a team effort.


New website for 2020

New website for 2020If you’ve visited us before you will no doubt be able to tell that we now have a shiny new website for all things Slog related. 

This new site is your one-stop shop for all information regarding the event, including when registration open, event changes, route details, parking, partners, and maybe even what music Terry is going to be using for the warm-up.

2020 is a big year for us, not just with a change of race director, but it’s our 30th anniversary, and we are planning to make this year’s event better than ever. Don’t worry, we’re not going to change things up for the sake of it, nor takeaway any of the great bits that make the event what it is. There will still be plenty of mud on the day.

So please bookmark and keep an eye on this new site, and check back frequently for up to date information about the race.

Make sure to pencil Sunday 8th November onto your new calendar right now. Happy New Year.
