The best way to get to the gym is via the A1, exiting at junction 9.

The gym have kindly offered us the use of parking, toilets, changing and post-race food, a BBQ!

The racecourse is just under 1km away from the gym, in the neighbouring village of Willian. This will be marshalled/signposted. Please allow enough time to get to the start, as we must begin on time.

The course itself is a mixture of tarmac and trail. At this time of year, the trail should be nice and dry. One note to make is that from 5.5km to 8km, this is along a path that runs along a national speed limit road. You will be running towards traffic, so any overtaking should be done with caution.

There will be marshals present along this section, and the drinks station will be around the 7km mark as this is the only real safe place to do so.

For the food afterwards, we are doing a BBQ! ……But, if you know of anyone who runs for your club who is genuinely in need of gluten free rolls or is a veggie, let us know ASAP so we can get the said products in stock!
