Start Point

Valley Road is slightly further North West of the previous stage finish in Parklands, along Coombe Road.

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

In front of the gate by the farm in Old Sodbury.

 

Parking

At Wotton we need to keep out of the Parklands Close, where the previous stage finishes, as the residents get a bit shirty. Try to make this a fly by and drop off / pick-up, as parking is a problem here. Definitely not a location to leave a car in during the run, unless you can find somewhere comfortably away from Parklands. There are Car Parks in Wotton, and as its not a big place, these are the best to go for.

 

In Old Sodbury, parking is not exactly plentiful, but generally cars tend to accumulate down Chapel Lane, but please, only with consideration to the residents who think its an alien invasion. You may ennd up at least 5 minutes walk back to the Dog Inn so allow time.

 

Race Profile

Cracking. A delightful start for workhorses, and some flat to stretch the legs out and build some speed.
