GOW returns for 2022

Plans are coming together for GOW to return on 22 October 2022. Without doubt, COVID-19 will continue to influence our world through 2022 and well beyond. As a consequence there will likely be some changes but the aim will be to see 100 runners traverse the GOW track again this year. We all know only too well that we can't predict what will happen but there is growing certainty in outdoor activities and so we aim to be back in 2022. Entry opening date should be announced soon. In the meantime, please stay safe.
