Handy Cross Runners XC – Sunday 21st January 2024 11.00am

Handy Cross Runners is pleased to welcome your club members and supporters to our cross-country race in Bradenham Woods by kind permission of the National Trust.

From junction 4 on the M40 take the A4010 signposted towards Aylesbury. Turn right into Bradenham Woods Lane at the Red Lion. At the top of the lane turn left onto New Road, the parking is further along on the left. The post code is HP14 4UW.

Parking - please note this is different to previous years
Car parking is in the RAF visitor car park with a small amount of additional parking further along. The car park is fairly small so please car share, single occupancy cars may be turned away. Alternative car parking can be found in the National Trust car park or along the road in Bradenham. This is about a mile from the start. Please avoid using the residential streets in Naphill.

Start / Finish
The food and tent area is on a hard standing area within the RAF base. You won’t be able to peg tents or flags into the ground. Please bring weights if you wish to put these up. Toilets will be provided in this area should you need them. Any kit can be left at the finish area at your own risk. The start/finish is about 400m down into the woods, so please ensure you leave enough time to get to the start.

Race Administration
We will be using discs again this year. Please ensure that you record each of your runners’ finishing positions on your sheets and return the discs to us with the completed sheets.

The course is the same as in previous years except you will come up the main track at the end, with the finish being further uphill than in previous years, making the course even harder! The course is roughly 5.7 miles in length. It is suitable for spikes but there are short sections where the paths are quite hard and stony.

Best wishes
Handy Cross Runners
