WHAT HAPPENS ON RACE NIGHTS?…

Registration opens at 5pm...

Representatives will be on hand at the sports centre to sign competitors in.

 

Marshals will escort competitors to the start line at 6.15pm...

The starting point of the race is a short walk from the school site and in an effort to ensure every competitor finds their way there, marshals will escort all competitors as a large group to the start.

 

6.30pm...A chance to warm up...

Once at the start/finish area, there is the opportunity to check out the initial part of the course and warm up before the start of the race.


Race Time is 7pm...

There is a large, open area for the start of the race, but the course does narrow quite quickly so be sure to get a good position on the start line.


Race completion...

As a rough guide we foresee the races being wrapped up by 8pm. Again, our marshals will escort all competitors back to the school site from the race location.


Prize Giving...

For those who want to stay we will conduct a prize giving ceremony.

RACE  TIME

All races will start at 7 pm.

Due to there being a 10 minute walk between the registration point and the start line, all competitors are required to be registered by 6pm, for the 7pm start.

THE ROUTE

Starting in a disused 19th century sandstone quarry, the course winds through woodlands to the top of the quarry before emerging out into the scenic Court woods. The course then meanders its way through the woods taking in wild meadows and tight twisting pathways before re-emerging in the quarry for the finish.
