The course is undulating - one quarter hard trail, remainder tarmac. I would estimate, in good conditions, a top club runner would win it in 33/34 minutes. Good, well supported road shoes are adequate. There will be a water station half way, with the possibilities of a second, depending on the weather. Slower runners should always consider carrying some hydration! The usual radio and medical back up will also be in place.
Changing, where required is in the main hall with separate male/female toilets. there are further public toilets close by. Registration/presentation and after race refreshments will also be in the main hall.
Entry fees are £10.00 affiliated club. £12.00 unattached. See entry form for more details.
Entries will be accepted on the day up till 13.30pm, at a fee of £1.00 extra. Parking will be signed on entry to the village.
