SUMMER SOLSTICE 10K
We have had to push back the upcoming event due to recent developments but we have been given the ok to go with the event on Fri 31st July!!
A few details regarding the event are here for ye.
The start will be done in waves, each approx 5 minutes apart, with 15 runners/walkers in each wave. All race numbers will be posted out a few days before the event so there will be no need to collect on the day of the event. The start is beside the dressing rooms so we would ask people to wait in their cars until a few minutes before their wave is due to go. The dressing rooms wont be accessible but the toilet facilities will be ok to use.
The car park and complex itself are plenty big to warm up in without having to congregate in any one area.
For anyone that is already registered, your starting time is 7pm, 705pm and 710pm. We can sort the exact times on the evening. The event itself will begin at 630pm with the first wave. These times will be used for new entries. You can select your start time on the registration page.
The last wave will go at 730pm. THERE IS A CUT OFF OF 1HOUR 45MINUTES FOR THIS EVENT. If you think that this would be your approx finish time, please select one of the earlier start times as we have to vacate the complex by 9pm
The event will be chip timed so there is no rush to be at the front of the group etc, once you cross the start mat, your time will start recording. The results will be based on when you cross the start/finish mats so it wont matter what wave you are in.
Water will be close to the 5k mark, but will have to be taken by each runner. We cannot hand these out. Please keep your bottle with you until the finish as this will reduce the need for more people to be on the course cleaning up.
Water/Fruit and finishers medal can be collected at the finish line. Unfortunately we cant hand these out individually so they will be on tables just after the finish line. The finish is near the main entrance to the complex so please proceed to the car park once you are finished. Civil Defence will be on hand if anyone is in difficulty.
We would love it if we could make it a little more personal like always, but rules dictate otherwise on this one. But we do look forward to seeing ye all in a few weeks!
Keep up the training and see ye all at the end of July!!
