Tintern Trot 1st July - CHANGES


The Tintern Trot 2010


Thursday July 1st: Start 7.30pm 

Sponsored by Chepstow Physiotherapy Clinic 

Once again Chepstow Harriers will be organising the ever-popular Tintern Trot.  This is a scenic 6mile (approx) multi-terrain race.  The route description can be found below.


There are prizes for the first 3 Ladies, the first 3 Men and age category prizes from V35 to V60 for men and V35 to V55 for ladies.  Every runner gets a free pint or special soft drink of their choice.


Entries are on the night only at race headquarters in Tintern village hall.  Cars can be parked in the abbey visitors’ car park adjacent to the river, or the abbey overflow car park immediately opposite the abbey.  Further parking is available 300m up the road next to the Royal George, who once again are providing the drinks.


The entry fees are £6 and £8 respectively.


For general enquiries contact TinternTrot@chepstowharriers.org.uk




The race will be very similar to recent years but with a change to the start and finish point.  The race will start at the Tintern end of the old railway bridge, next to the Abbey Mill (NP16 6SE).  The race crosses the bridge and then follows the river for about a mile, along the course of the old railway line.  It then climbs up through the woods (about 600ft!) to reach Offa’s Dyke path, going north along the path for a mile or so.  At the 3 way post the route goes down past HAPPA, and then turns left back along the lane to rejoin the outward route and back to finish at the same point as the start.
