Additional information from the organiser

Mappers and Planners Trevor and Hazel have provided the following information ...

Terrain

Expect hills (not necessarily compulsory!) as well as northern terraces, parkland, Hyde town centre and a disused railway line (which is mostly paved but not lit) bisecting the area.

Points

A slight change to normal with points from 30 to 90 just to keep you on your toes!

Parking

The car park at the Grapes is quite small so it is likely that you will need to find parking on surrounding streets. Wych Fold and Lord Derby Road to the south west and School Lane, King Edward Road and Windsor Road to the north and north west look the best candidates. Stockport Road (because it is busy) and Joel Road (because it is narrow and double parked with residents) should be avoided. There is a small car park opposite Double Ds Café which might have spaces.

Food & Drink

The pub has asked if runners could pre-order food before they depart and the chef is happy to stay as long as needed. The pub has been particularly obliging so do stay and have a drink/eat if you can. Thanks

Reserving a map

As usual, we need to know the approximate numbers of runners so that we can ensure that we have enough maps for all.

To reserve a map for the event, please email Grahame at ,  indicating the number required, by 5pm on Monday 25th February.

If you are a "first-timer", please provide details of your club, and year of birth, along with your name.

And don't forget ...

All competitors MUST wear a high-visibility top.

There are no exceptions to this, and no excuse for not wearing one, as we can lend you one if you have forgotten yours.  

NO High Viz top, NO GO.
