The Stickler 2019
27 October 2019
The Stickler (now in its 25th year) is a 10.1 mile multi terrain running race. It involves over 1500ft of gruelling climbing, beginning with the infamous ’Stickle Path’. Runners ascend three locally renowned peaks along the beautiful Stour Valley: Okeford Beacon, Hod Hill and Hambledon. The course is mostly on gravel tracks with some stretches on tarmac and grass.
Sponsors: This year the race is proudly sponsored by CC Moore. CC Moore is a globally acclaimed supplier of premium quality fishing baits specialising in the innovation, development and delivery of highly effective baits for specimen carp angling.
