Race Registration, Start & Finish:
This is all at the same location and just a 700m walk from the access off Glasgow Road (A872). It’ll be a great spot for spectators to base themselves.
Registration will open at 6.30pm, the race briefing will commence at 6.55pm and the race will start at 7.00pm.
Race numbers and safety pins will be handed out here. Race numbers must be cleary visible from the front for the entire race. Obstructed, folded or lost race number may result in us not being able to record your time, so memorising your number is beneficial.
The race distance is made up of 3km laps of ‘relatively flat’ anti-clockwise loops of Chacefield Wood, taking in a mix of forest tracks/paths and natural rutted, boggy trails both in sheltered woodland and open ground.
The lap is entirely off-road but suitable for ordinary trainers or trail shoes (not suitable for spikes). The course will be marshalled and arrowed at all junctions.
