Race Date: Sunday 26th March 2017
The Cleevewold is a tough and hilly 14 mile multi-terrain race hosted by Cheltenham and County Harriers and held annually since 1990, taking in medieval barns, neolithic burial mounds and the highest points of the Cotswold hills.
101 runners took advantage of the spring conditions to race the trails and first back over the line was local Tommaso Migliuolo (Cheltenham and County Harriers) in a time of 1:46:33. First lady home was Gemma Hargraves of Almost Athletes, a second under the 2 hour mark.
Taking advantage of his newly acquired MV50 status, lone Strider Paul Stuart made the journey South to record an impressive time of 2:02:46. Well done and many happy returns Paul!
