Harvester Trophy

The Harvester Trophy is a Level B overnight relay competition for teams of seven or five runners. It is modelled on similar events in Scandinavia, such as the Tio Mila and the Jukola. There are 7 classes dependent upon team composition, i.e. male/female/mixed and age etc.

This year the Harvester takes place on Cleeve Common, the highest point of the Cotswolds, starting at midnight on Saturday 25 June 2016, and finishing on Sunday morning, 26 June. Cleeve consists of fast open grassland with large areas of scattered gorse, a steep and complex Western escarpment, and other areas of old quarry workings with intricate contours.
