Figures reveal that nearly 1.5m people in the UK are affected by macular disease, the nation’s biggest cause of sight loss. (See the organisation's website here for more information.)

Harey 8 2018 - one of the children's races
The start and finish of the main race will be at the Triangle Field. The route will take runners around a loop of the Triangle Field before heading out towards Hungerford Common. There, runners will be directed on a course taking in the beautiful Port Down Common before descending gently towards Templeton/Trinity Stud. It then follows a circular clockwise route on footpaths, providing stunning views of Combe and the countryside. The runners will then return via the Common back to the Triangle Field.
See map of route here.
