Salisbury Trail 5-4-3-2-1

Well done to all who took place in the recent Salisbury 54321 Trail Marathon in Wessex which saw over 1,115 finishers over the combined main Marathon and other supporting events.
The Salisbury 54321 Trail, was organised (in its 20th year) by a Fire Sport UK events team (of serving and retired firefighters) based in Wiltshire. Hosted at Salisbury Fire Station, with a Check Point at Wilton Fire Station, by Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service.

*(soon to be the home of the joint HQ of the new combined Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service (April 2016)) and in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity.

The Salisbury 5-4-3-2-1 walk, or trail run is an event suited to all the family, with a choice of distances from 5km to the more demanding 42k/Marathon, or even a 50k Ultra Marathon. The routes are over footpaths, bridleways and quiet country roads in the Salisbury Wessex area. The walk/trail runs, takes you past a variety of sites of historical and scientific interest and through country estates not usually open to the general public. This has been made possible by the kind permission of several landowners along the route and including English Heritage.
