The Race to the Stones - 10th July 2021
Race report from Martyn: On 10th July a team of former and current Harriers met in a field just outside the Oxfordshire village of Lewknor to start
the 2021 Race to the Stones, a 100km point-to-point ultramarathon across The Ridgeway. The day started with drizzle and cool temperatures but soon developed into a humid day with the odd shower,
mercifully without the heat that would follow the week after. Soon the route leaves behind flat fields, climbs through a forest and winds along the banks of the Thames and through a few towns,
eventually up onto the Ridgeway, with sweeping views and very technical terrain proving tough on the ankles. After what feels like a lifetime, you drop away from the Ridgeway into Avebury, to a
(demoralising!) out-and-back to loop round a pair of the iconic stones, before one last km to the finish.
