Colne Engaine 5 and 10 Mile Fun Run
Sunday 3rd September 2017 – Race starts 11.00am
from the Village Green
This will be the 2nd annual (exciting, I know) 5 and 10 mile fun run in Colne Engaine
It will be combined with a children's run. Both events will be timed.
This is a country lane based fun run! Starting in the centre of the universe... well, okay the village green at Colne Engaine. The course takes you on a figure of 8 for the 5 mile run and if you're running 10 miles then you'll do the same figure of 8 twice! The end of the run is a downhill dash, finishing with a run along Pebmarsh Road and back onto the village green to the sound of a roaring crowd.
The route can be found on our Facebook page
Entry Fee: £10.00
Enter online by Saturday 2nd September 2017
Entries may be available on the day only if we have not reached our maximum number, an additional £1.00 per entrant will be charged
There will be one water station along the route, at Buntings Green. Water will also be available after the finish funnel. There are no road closures in operation. It is your responsibilitly to abide by the highway-code at all times. We are also insisting that headphones, MP3 devices or similar are not worn.
Please collect your race number from the registration point in the village hall from 9.30 am. Your number is not transferable. The number should be securely fastened to the front of your top and be clearly visible at all times. Please ensure you complete the medical/emergency details on its reverse. Please also bring safety pins if you can.
Parking for runners is available at the football ground along Pebmarsh Road. This is only a 5 minute walk to the village hall. Please follow the directions of the marshals. Please be very courteous if parking in the residential roads near to the village hall. There are limited opportunities to park on the course given the narrow roads. If you do park outside of the football ground, please do not block drives or entrances to fields, as this event relies on the continued support of the local community and farmers.
This can be left in the run HQ (village hall), at the owner's risk. Please use the labels provided to mark your race number on your bag. This area is secure and will be manned at all times, although we cannot accept liability for loss or damage. Your race number will be needed to collect your bag once the run has ended.
At the finish please proceed steadily through the funnel and keep in finishing order as you do so. Do not remove your number before geting through the funnel. Medals and water are available after you leave the finish area.
There will be scrummy cakes, tea, coffee and cold drinks available either outside or inside the village hall, it will depend upon the weather! There will the now famous bacon butties too - one for every runner, no charge, we just ask for a donation towards our local charities and good causes.
As mentioned above on the day entries will only be available if we have not reached our maximum number of entrants. We will keep our facebook page updated and of course the number of sign ups can be found on entry central. The on the day entries will open at approximately 9.00am in the village hall. If you have any problems or queries on the dy, please ask at the informaion desk. On the day entries will close promptly at 1.30am to allow all runners to be herded to the start.
Children's fun run
In conjunction with the 5 and 10 mile fun run, we are also having a 1 mile fun run. This will take place on the recreation ground and field behind the village hall and will be completely 'off road'. As the route follows the edges of the fields it is not suitable for pushchairs. The route will be marshalled but all children under 8 should be accompanied by an adult. If your under 8 is quicker than you now is the time to start your training!
There will be medals and prizes for all children
