Aderire Autumn 100
Goring-on-Thames (or Goring) is a relatively large village and civil parish on the Thames in South Oxfordshire, about 5.5 miles (8.9 km) south of Wallingford and 8 miles (13 km) north-west of Reading. It has a railway station, which is on the main line between Oxford and London in the nucleus of the village. As a civil parish, most of the land is farmed and woodland on the Goring Gap outcrop of the Chiltern Hills. Its riverside plain is made up of the residential area of the village including its high street, which has a few shops, public houses and restaurants. Neighbouring this street are the village’s churches, one of which, to Saint Thomas Becket, has a nave that was built in the 50 years after his death in the early 13th century, and a later bell tower. The village faces Streatley and is connected to that village, which has a lower population and a large riverside hotel, by Goring and Streatley Bridge. This is also the host of the annual Ultra The Autumn 100.
The Autumn 100 (previously the Winter 100) is a 100 mile continuous Trail Race based in the twinned villages of Goring and Streatley on the River Thames. The course reflects the shape of a cross and takes runners on a series of four different 2 mile out and back spurs, using sections of both the Ridgeway and Thames National Trails.
Punti salienti del corso
The race starts at Goring and returns there every 25 miles. The course is designed as a series of 4 out and backs making use of Goring & Streatley's unique position, at the confluence of the Thames Path and Ridgeway National Trails.
The race at first travels to Little Wittenham on the Thames Path, traveling up through Wallingford, crossing the river at Benson Lock and making a turn around just before Days Lock, a remote point on the river where there will be a small aid station - before returning to Goring via the same route. The second out and back is on the Ridgeway, along the water initially before cutting in land past South and North Stoke, to Swncombe aid station and returning to Goring once again. Spur 3 takes runners on the South Westerly Ridgeway path through Bury Down & East Hendred, to Chain Hill aid station and returning to Goring. The final section of the course travels east through Whitchurch via the Village Hall aid station and Tilehurst, as far as the Waterside Centre on the Thames Path at Reading before heading back to Goring and the 100 mile finish.
