Shires and Spires 2023

  • 14th May 2023

Run the historic Shires and Spires route located in Naseby for Cransley Hospice Trust.

Offering four routes, each one offers a mixture of trails and roads:

For both the Marathon and Ultra Marathon, you will spot the country houses of Holdenby, Althorp and Cottesbrooke. These routes also offer a break from the usual road races for these distances and create a new challenge with the changing terrain.

All distances will start and finish at Naseby Village Hall, located close to the A14, M1 and M6 motorways.

Here is James Waling, he ran the full Marathon (clockwise) in 2022. He raised an incredible £450 for Cransley Hospice Trust.

“A family friend received care in Cransley Hospice. It was a difficult time, but the team at the Hospice were incredibly caring and helpful. “

“I had never run a marathon before and I wanted it to be a challenge, over multi terrain. The locality of this event meant that my family and friends had the opportunity to attend and support me on the day. I am keen to do it again in 2023!”
