Heddington 5k - August
Tuesday 14th August 2018
**** Please note, this will enter you into the AUGUST Heddington 5k****
Setting off circa 100m beyond the Charles Willis Hall (SN11 OPH), the route takes in a downhill start before levelling out to get yourself well on your way to what will be three quick miles. At 0.8 miles in you bear right and continue along a flat fast 0.5 mile before bearing right once again at Broads Green. From here you will continue along a couple of straight sections of country road for 1 mile before hitting the junction of Stockley Lane/Stockley Road. From this point you will again bear right to carry along Stockley Road along flat country lanes for 0.8 mile heading back towards the heart of Heddington to the finish, which is outside the Ivy Inn, perfect for those of you who feel an alcoholic beverage will be the ideal way to celebrate your achievements around this flat, fast route.
Please note this race is run in a "stripped back" style. We at Calne Running Club simply want people to get out and enjoy their chance at achieving a PB around this course. The race has an ARC race permit and a certificate of course accuracy, along with suitable medical cover and plenty of water at the finish.... and chip timing courtesy of LPS Events! In an attempt to keep races in the runner's diary that are cheap yet still enjoyable, you will not receive any memento at the end. However, you will receieve a sweet chocolate treat to get your energy levels back up! Your small entry fee simply goes into the organisation of the event, ensuring it is safe and enjoyable for all.
