Race Day information
Free on-street parking is available on Chearsley Road and Chilton Road. Additional parking is available at the Recreation Area of the park and at the village square. Please do not park on the High Street, as this is easily congested and will be full of pedestrians.
Registration is at Church House on the High Street, just opposite Burts Lane, between 9:00 and 10:00am. Runners who have booked online will be able to pick up their numbers inside. Runners wishing to pay on the day will need to bring £10 cash. There is a cashpoint in the village shop on the Square, just at the southern end of the High Street.
There are male and female toilets at Church House which can be used for changing. You are welcome to leave bag in Church House while you're racing, just ask at the registration desk.
The race starts at St Mary's Church, just a short walk up the High Street. Follow the signs and leave plenty of room at the start for other pedestrians who may be trying to get to Church on time! We'll have a race briefing at 10:25 which will include a few points about safety on the course, and we'll start the race at 10:30 with a special peal of bells courtesy of our friendly local bellringers.
The race ends at St Mary's Church, where we will have our officials taking times and numbers down and giving out our specially-commissoned medals. Once you've finished, feel free to cheer everyone else in, or make your way back to Church House for some much-needed refreshments.
There will be food and drink for sale at Church House, including hot and cold drinks and cakes. If you need cash, there is a cashpoint in the shop in the village Square just down the road.
Our timing is via the Sports Entry Systems app, and we have two marshals on timing duty at the finish line to capture your details. This has proved to be a good system. Once the final runners are in, we upload the times to this website and share a link with you all.
If you do not wish your photo to be used for promotions, press or to be hosted on the website of our photographer, please let us know and we will make sure your race number is marked accordingly. Likewise, if your parent or carer would like to request this please let us know.
