The Wellington Monument Race is an annual race of 6.27 miles (10090 metres) promoted by Taunton Athletic Club. Starting at 10:00 hrs from the Catherine Wheel pub in Hemyock village square, the route then climbs to and circles the Wellington Monument, returning along the same road to finish at the local village primary school. One mile of firm stone track, a steep ascent and descent of approximately mile form part of this undulating, hilly, scenic and rural course. The course is accurately measured and R.R.C certified distance of 6.27 miles within AAA and UKA standards. Unfortunately the hilly route makes this race unsuitable for wheelchairs. The Wellington Monument (location) forms the half way point of the race, before returning to the finish at Hemyock Primary School where a finisher award, mulled wine and mince pie will be waiting for all runners. A good range of refreshments will be available both before and after the race. Changing areas and toilets are available but sorry there are no shower facilities.
