The Wincanton Sports Ground management team has set out a new 3km (1.86 miles) running course around the whole site. The course starts just before the tennis courts and is marked by red and white arrow signs. It covers several types of ground, including grass (possibly mud), gravel and tarmac, so come prepared. The course finishes next to the outside toilet which is open 24 hours.

If the pavilion is open, please pop in and say hello! Drinks will always be available to purchase.
