The Return of the Magnificent Dozen

The Return of the Magnificent Dozen

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 10:30

The Dursley Dozen is now in its 28th year and is established as one of the toughest off-road races around and run under the ARC rules.

A multi-terrain race of twelve miles over hillsides, roads, woodland, open country, mud, more mud, and solid rock. The course sets off steeply up a road for 200 metres and the ascends a woodland track to the top of Stinchcombe hill.

After a short run around the golf course, the route re-enters the woods (steep descent) before climbing steeply back to the golf course. A short run on the road then onto a muddy track through the woods. Across the road, then an undulating path leads to a steep descent to the New Inn followed by a steep ascent back to the hilltop. Through the quarry then three miles of track (sometimes very muddy) through the beech woods.

For the final climb, "THE PRECIPICE" ropes are provided. Two miles of grassland track around the golf course and back through the woods to the finish.

This year, we will be reintroducing the amazing finish of running down the pedestrianised Parsonage Street and finishing in front of the 'stilted' Market Hall building.

Technical T-shirts to all finishers.

£13:00 Affiliated Runners

£15:00 Unaffiliated

This year an booking fee will be a supplemental charge, we still think the race is good value, especially with a technical T and more cake than you can eat!

Dursley & Cam Society

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 19:30

The February meeting of the Dursley & Cam Society will take place in the Town Hall, Dursley at 7-30 p.m. on Tuesday, 14th February. The speaker will be the local historian, Rose Hewlett who will give an illustrated presentation entitled "William Sheppard: Cromwell's Law Reformer". The entry fee, which includes light refreshments, is £2 for members and £3 for non-members.

Background information:

Sheppard: Cromwell's law reformer - as one of the most prolific legal writers of the 17th century, Sheppard's suggested reforms (which included land registration) led this Gloucestershire lawyer to become Oliver Cromwell's personal adviser for three years.

William Sheppard (1595-1674) was born in the small Gloucestershire village of Frampton on the Severn estuary, where he spent much of his life as country lawyer. However, this did not keep him from becoming "one of the most prolific" legal writers of the 17th century and legal adviser to Oliver Cromwell. In a career spanning more than half a century, he wrote William twenty-seven books: twenty-three on such legal topics as property, law enforcement and common law, and four religious tracts.
