The Great Malvern Run 2005

NewMiniSeverns invite you to

The Great Malvern Run 2005

7th August 2005

A not to be missed mini adventure exploring the beautiful Malvern Hills and their immediate surroundings, with the flat plain of the Severn valley on the Worcestershire side and the rolling landscape of Herefordshire on the other. The run will be topped off with a short stroll to the top of one of the Malvern Hills for a look at the view and a group photo shoot – you can’t come to The Malverns and not go to the top!

The run will be in three legs with kick off at 10.00 am for a ten thirty start and a scene setting first leg ending with a coffee break at elevenish. The second leg will finish with a lunch stop which will be a reasonably leisurely affair at a local pub and the afternoon final leg will culminate with the short easy walk to the top of The Malverns, with a run end time of about 4.30pm.

Full pace notes, meeting point etc. will be posted closer to the date and the run will have all the standard run ingredients – twisty single track lanes, stunning scenery and the obligatory ford crossing!

TonyM and Beastmaster will be on hand throughout the day to mis-direct you appropriately.

If you would like to join us post your interest in this thread and please also read the Mini2 Guide on run etiquette, which can be found here.

UPDATE (12th March 2005) Due to the popularity of this run, we have had a slight re-think on the pub lunch. Basically, the pub is going to set aside their function room for our use and lay on a full buffet style lunch. This is going to be a fiver a head and we will pm everyone on the run regarding this shortly. This will enable us to all get fed and watered in a fraught free fashion, in a reasonable time frame that will ensure that the run sticks to schedule. As it should be a hot day we will be able to cascade into their gardens with our grub. We are using the pub as a stop as it has good plentiful parking, which is a rare commodity in The Malverns in Summer and it hedges our bets should the weather be drizzly. Because we are using the pubs premises and parking it would not be appropriate for us all to turn up with our own picnics. We hope this appeals to everyone, but if anyone has any questions please PM me with them.

Saturday Night Entertainment



We have finally settled on accommodation for the Saturday night for those that require it.

We are proposing a meal for all those staying and a few locals on Saturday night at The Swan in Hanley Swan, Worcestershire.

So for convenience we would suggest staying at The Swan which has 5 en suite rooms.

If more rooms are required there is an elegant Georgian bed and breakfast in the village called Yew Tree House which has 3 en suite rooms.

Please let me know when/if you have booked accomodation so that I can reserve a table for the right numbers.

Update 15th July 2005

The Start point is the car park in Upton Upon Severn opposite the river and adjacent to the Texaco garage (See Map) and as stated it is 10.00am for a 10.30 start. Toilets are available at the car park and petrol can be obtained at the adjacent texaco garage - Optimax lovers need to plan ahead as nearest Shell garages are 15 miles away!

For those attending the evening meal at The Swan we are meeting there at 7.30 for a meal booked at 8.00pm. Finally the pace notes are now available to be downloaded

Route Map

Also TonyM has done some Tom Tom files which can be downloaded onto your Tom Tom sat nav systems.

For those concerned about crossing the Ford (View here) there is a cut through you can use by following this map. MAP AVOIDING FORD

Woohoo!!! I'm number 1 one the list

Once you have some ideas about the start point can you nominate a hotel for those who have a longer journey?

This run is an excellent one to do in a cabriolet, to take full advantage of the views!

I don't doubt it for a second Ady! Looking forward to it.

Car was delivered beginning of November last year. This particular winter just seems to be dragging on, and on. Dropping the roof, on a nice warm, blue skied sunny day seems miles away at the mo!
