Start Point

The start will be made from in front of Stanway House, just before you head off to the left down the track. Make sure someone has the first gate into the field opened, and that someone has also got the gate onto the road (B4077) open, and ready to hold traffic when you flood across. It then gets tight pretty quickly in the small enclosed path for 100 metres after the road - GET AHEAD!  This is a residential area, so you are kindly requested to keep noise to a minimum, and to park with careful consideration. Please be sure to arrive a reasonable period of time before the start for registration, preparation and briefing. The race will start without you.

Finish Point

At the entrance to the quarry car park by the Cleeve Common Golf Club.



Parking is often done on the roadsides. Please be very careful not to obstruct the road for locals,and to keep cars clear and not to linger on the road approaching Stanway House as the finishers will be sprinting past there in no time.

At the finish end, parking is in the quarry and not under any circumstances in the Golf Club Car Park. Park very carefully taking up as little space as possible in the open car park - we really need to squeeze ourselves in here.

Alternatively, park in the village and walk up onto the Common using the footpath by the gate - its only 250 metres or so.

This is a Golf Course. Be quiet, do not walk over tees and greens and respect the golfers concentration (they need it, alot, I understand). Please visit the clubhouse for coffees etc - we are here with their permission so its good to give them some trade.



Race Profile

A good hard piece of work, sadly softened by the 2009 route amendment at the end
