Wednesday 4 August 2021

This event is open only to members.

Where do we meet?

Park at the Jag Club in Browns Lane. Allow time to get to the start. Warm up by jogging the 1 mile to the start which is the junction of Bridle Brook Lane and Pikers Lane. Be at the start and ready to run by 7.15pm.

What do I have to do to take part?

You have to let the teams organiser know in advance if you want to take part. The teams organiser will compile the teams using handicap results or other recent race results for a similar distance. If you have said you will take part then find you can’t let the teams organiser know so that the teams can be adjusted.
Don’t just turn up on the night and expect to take part – you’re likely to be disappointed.

Who decides the teams?

The teams organiser will create the teams from the list of names. Teams themselves decide the order in which their runners run.

What is the course and over what distance?

The start and finish is the junction of Bridle Brook Lane and Pikers Lane. The route is from Pikers  along Bridle Brook Lane, straight on-ish into Washbrook Lane, left into Hawkes Mill Lane, left at the White Lion pub, up Wall Hill Road, then left into Bridle Brook Lane and finish where you started at the end of Pikers Lane.
The distance per leg is approx. 3.2 miles.
