Horseless Team Event 2013

This year's Horseless Team Event (HTE) attracted almost 500 runners who enjoyed competing over the world-famous Badminton Horse Trials obstacles in glorious sunny conditions. This was the 30th time that the Rotary Club of the South Cotswolds had run this event in the beautiful Badminton Park, and we would like to thank His Grace, The Duke of Beaufort, for supporting this event.

 

The event is split into three races: 5 miles, 9 miles, and 13 miles for those of you who thought 9 miles just wasn't far enough. These provide entrants of all abilities with an exciting and challenging venue.

  

This year, the money made from organising the event will be donated to local organisations and charity groups who come to enjoy the event with us and who provide valuable services, and to Rotary International's continuing campaign to eradicate polio worldwide.

 

The prize winners shown below form the definitive list which differs from some of the names announced at the event owing to technical problems experienced by the time-keeping company. The full results from this event can be found on the DB Max web site. There were over 1,500 visits to the results web site in the first week since the event which proves its continuing popularity.
