Reading Roadrunners - Sunday 7th January at 11am

Reading Roadrunners will once again be hosting their event at Ashenbury Park, Tippings Lane, Woodley, Reading, RG5 4RX.

The course will be the same as in recent years - 2 laps mainly on open grassy ground, plus a trail through the woods. No huge hills, rivers or bogs but it will be strength-sapping in wet conditions. The course can get very muddy in winter, so a change of socks and shoes is highly advisable.

The total distance is around 5.2 miles, and there are opportunities for runners to see and support their friends and teammates as they pass each other in the various short two-way sections.

We do not have sole use of the park, and there may be dog walkers or other members of the public around the course.

The club tents/flags area will be near to the race start/finish.

All finishers will be handed a token. Please take this to your club reps.

Parking will be slightly different this year, and car-sharing is strongly advised. In the first instance free parking will be available at Willow Bank School, Duffield Road, Woodley, Reading, RG5 4RW, around 500m from the race venue. Once this is full, participants should use Headley Road Pay and Display Car Park, Headley Road, Woodley, Reading, RG5 4JA, where charges will apply (£1 per hour). This is around 1.2 miles from the race venue, so be sure to allow extra time to walk or jog to the start. Please do not park on local residential roads or the future of our event could be jeopardised.

Portable toilets and urinals will be available at the race venue. There are also public toilets in the Oakwood Centre, opposite Headley Road Car Park.

An external First Aid provider will be in attendance.

Refreshments will be located in the Ashenbury Park Car Park. Please bring your own cups and plates.

Good luck and enjoy!
