The event will start at Kilworth House Hotel
Kilworth House estate – set in 38 acres of beautiful Leicestershire parkland – not only has a top notch hotel in a Victorian grade II listed former family home, featuring a beautiful orangery and fantastic views from the terrace over open countryside, but also surprises with a theatre in a beautiful wooded glade, close to the lake in the grounds. The auditorium has a maximum capacity of 540 comfortable, padded seats in tiered rows, all which provide a superb view of the stage area.
Welland Valley Wanderers will enjoy a visit to The Staging Post – a fantastical wooden log cabin in the woods near to the theatre where the hotel will be serving teas, coffee and breakfast rolls to all the entrants.
The midway halt will be at Boughton House, near Kettering. This is one of the best preserved grand houses in the country. Fabulous grounds and gardens feature a series of stunning vistas, tree-lined avenues and bold water features.
The event will finish at Leicester Airport
