Parking & facilities
Can competitors please arrive early and car share as much as possible. If it’s possible to park elsewhere and car share for the last few miles, this would help. Please do not park anywhere in the village as we need to maintain a bus route and keep the course clear. On arrival, please follow the car parking marshals’ directions, and bear in mind, the earlier you arrive, the more likely you will park closer to the start line.
“We are expecting another record entry of teams this year which will place pressure on car parking arrangements in Low Bradfield. The car parking will be initially in the village car park, then up Fair House Lane to the bus turnaround, then along Windy Bank towards Agden Reservoir on both sides of the road. Finally, cars will be directed up Mill Lee Road above the Plough. From the furthest parking point, it will be a maximum 10 minutes’ walk to the start/finish. There will be NO PARKING on New Road or anywhere within the village on the course. Car parking marshals have instructions to move cars parking up which aren’t in the designated areas.
Can you please advise all your competitors to follow the direction of the car parking marshals? Last year we had a visit from the Police due to complaints about car parking, and a repeat visit could jeopardise the running of the event in future years”
Please DO NOT park in the Plough Inn car park or use their facilities – toilets are available in the cricket pavilion.
Our start time is 7.00pm which may be delayed to allow any changes to on-the-night declarations. The men’s race will start first, followed by the women 5 minutes later.
There are two payment options:
- Pay Pal (preferable) through this link no account necessary and pay by debit/credit card

There are no limitations to the number of teams entered, but please ensure you enter your teams well in advance. Changes to teams and running order can be made on the night. Additional teams can also be entered and paid for on the night. Entry is £20 per men’s team (4 runners), and £15 per ladies / M60 team (3 runners.)
