The race head-quarters was at Bourton Rovers Football Club, Rissington Road, Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire (opposite Birdland GL54 2BN ).

Once again, the race followed a single loop, starting and finishing in Bourton-on-the-Water.  A notable picturesque route through the pretty villages of Clapton, Sherborne, Windrush, Great Barrington and Great Rissington. We have a selection of photos and maps showing the course.

The race was again part of the Gloucestershire County Road-race series.

This year we were supporting Katharine House Hospice.

Background

The Hilly Half was introduced in 2004 to replace the Bourton Classic 15 mile race, which had been running for over 20 years.  So far it has proved to be a good move.
