The Rougemont Chase

------------------------------------------------------

Whether it’s running up to the famous Almscliffe Crag or along the banks of the River Wharf, running has been part of Weeton Show for as long as anyone can remember. With several British champions living in the local area this race is always hotly contested! The good prize money for all categories and keepsake medals for all competitors attracts plenty of entries. The adult’s race is circa 4½ miles. Shorter children's races will also be run in the main ring.

Dig out your old running shoes and get training. The applause you will receive when you cross the finish line in the main ring will make it all worthwhile!
