Denmead Striders Organised Round of
Today’s Runners Cross Country Series to be held on
Sunday 18th March 2012, Staunton Country Park,
Leigh Park, Havant, starting at 11.00 am
Welcome to the final Today’s Runner Cross Country League race of 2011/12.
LOCATION / DETAILS OF COURSE AND CAR PARK
The course will be at Staunton Country Park as per previous years, and subject to final permissions being granted we will be using the same course as last year. The start will be in the Park.
Parking at Staunton Country Park is limited, and there is a short walk to the start. Car sharing is strongly recommended and encouraged as last year we were close to capacity. Competitors and supporters must follow the instructions of the car park marshals to the correct area as failure to do so could lose the co-operation of the Country Park and future use of this course. Additional parking is available at Havant Thicket which is located 15-20 minutes from the start.
There will be no changing facilities at the start, so please come ready to take part.
Please be aware that the Country Park is open to the public on the day of the race and there will be walkers and dogs etc on the course. Please ask all runners to be courteous to any other persons that they may come across using the paths during the race. Where possible any obstacles or hazards will be clearly marked or marshalled, but great personal care must be taken.
First Aiders will be positioned around the course, marshals will have contact details.
Runners must be aware that they take part at their own risk and should be fit enough to enjoy this demanding course.
Refreshments will be served for the usual charge of £1.00 at:
Front Lawn Junior School, Broadmere Avenue, Havant, PO9 5HX (off Middle Park Way)
Toilet facilities are available, but unfortunately, no showers or washing facilities.
Please ensure that muddy shoes are not worn in the school hall after the race.
Result Sheets will be handed out on the day at the race director’s desk close to the start line of the race. Please complete and hand these in promptly after the race. Race results will be read out at the school as soon as collated.
All runners must wear a club vest.
Please observe the time limits:
No men who have run faster than 5.30 min/mile over a measured race of 5 miles or longer in the 12 months prior to the start of the season. This converts to a 10K time of 34:15.
No women who have run faster than 6.00 min/mile over a measured race of 5 miles or longer in the 12 months prior to the start of the season. This converts to a 10K time of 37:26.
We look forward to seeing you on the day and hope that you enjoy the race and that the weather is kind to us.
