Datchet XC - Sunday 12th November

Here are the details for the Datchet Cross Country:

Date: Sunday 12th November 2023
Time: 11:02
Place: The Brocas, Eton. Nearest postcode is SL4 6BW (Waterman's Arms)

Please note that there is no parking at the venue and very limited parking in Eton, so we strongly recommend car sharing where possible and using the various pay & display car parks in Windsor. Walk across the bridge to Eton, then immediately turn left to find The Brocas.

The official council web site for the local car parks is here.

We will be holding the Remembrance Day 2 minute silence at 11 am, immediately before the race start.

The course is flat & fast and approximately 10km. It starts with 2 laps round The Brocas to spread the field before going out onto The Thames Path up to Boveney, and then a meander back to The Brocas with some lovely views of the castle. It is a mix of grass, compacted gravel & tarmac, so it is not suitable for spikes. It is usually a good surface, but unless we have sun for the next week you can expect some muddy areas this year as some stretches are currently very wet.

A map of the race route can be found here.

Finishing disks will be handed out to all finishers - please return these disks to your club reps.

Food & drink will be served at the finish - please remember to bring your own plate & mug.

There will be portable toilets available on site, but please also make use of the various public toilets in Windsor & Eton.
Please do not use the bushes on The Brocas - there are certain local residents who actively look for it to happen so they can report it to Eton College.

Good luck to everybody for the race.
