Sunday 10th February 2019 : Race Start: 10.30am
The Course: Both women and men will run approx 5.5 miles – it is the same course as last year. There will be one small lap and two large laps. The course is mostly across open downland and is very hilly. It is suitable for spikes, studs or trail shoes.
Race HQ: Heath Sports Club.
(a close post code is SG8 5BJ)
Directions and course map: See maps attached at end
Parking: due to several sporting fixtures being hosted on the Heath we advise that you arrive as early as parking will be at a premium and we would ask runners to car share where possible.
Please follow the instructions of the parking marshals.
Train: from King’s Cross via Stevenage to Royston station. The Heath is 15 minutes walk from the station – please check Sunday service carefully before leaving as there is engineering work on race day.
Facilities: there will be portable loos and urinals onsite for runners to use. Please use these rather than the toilets in the Heath sports club as they struggle to cope when used by large numbers of people.
Please can all runners be aware that rugby matches and training sessions will be taking place in the area between the race start/finish and the Heath bar. Please avoid walking through this area and disrupting the training sessions.
Trophy presentations will take place – and the aim is to present the trophies for the leading individuals in all the age groups along with those team trophies where the positions are clear, as soon after the event as possible. There are however some very close team competitions so these may need to be checked carefully later, and those trophies will be presented at a later date.
Refreshments and bar available.
Please note that all muddy footwear must be removed before entering the sports centre, especially spikes. Please help us to maintain good relations with the sports club by adhering to this request!
