Please read the briefing carefully. It may be muddy through The Groves depending on the weather, so please choose your footwear accordingly. The run route finishes in front of the Leisure Centre not on the running track.
There is plenty of additional information on the website including a video of the bike course. The bike course is not on closed roads. The course is a figure of eight, so watch out for the sign at the central junction, turn left first time and straight on second time.

Please note junior athletes that you will need a parent present at the event.

Every year there are a few punctures before the race starts, so don't forget to bring along a spare inner tube and pump, just in case. We will be offering a free massage after the race from Scott Cornish physio.

The race will start at 1230 and registration will open from 1030. There is ample car parking in a field adjacent to the roundabout near the Leisure Centre - it will be well signed.

Wishing you the best of luck for your race and I hope you enjoy the day.
