RR10 – Stoney Cross – 7PM 1st May 2019 Final Race Instructions
Totton Running Club is looking forward to welcoming you to the second event of the new RR10 season at Stoney Cross which takes place on Wednesday 1 May 2019. The race will start promptly at 7PM prompt. Please arrive in good time to allow us to start on time - Usual race rules apply.
Drop out clubs for this event are Eastleigh, Lordshill and Romsey.
The route is the same as last year and is approximately 4.7miles in total over gravel track, forest paths, concrete and a grass area at the finish. You can expect the usual hazards but these will be suitably identified and marshalled, but please be careful whilst running the course. The course is not suitable for spikes
There are no toilet facilities available at the race venue.
This season the RR10 league has taken the decision not to provide plastic cups at the finish of any races and Totton Running Club fully support this change. There will be no cups available so please either bring your own bottled water or cup. There will be water available to all runners from large water containers. We may have cakes though!
Please make sure that you take all your litter home with you as there are no bins in the area
Leave M27 at junction 1 and at roundabout take B3079 to Brook and then fork left onto B3078. Turn next left (after golf course) and follow for about 1 mile to where you will see our parking marshals.
From A31 (access only available heading eastbound towards Southampton) exit at turning signposted Stoney Cross – You will see our marshals after about 1 mile.
Over the last two years we had major problems with late arriving runners parking on verges and the Forestry Commission have asked us to ensure that this does not happen this year. Car parking in the New Forest for events like this is a major concern for the Forestry Commission and we need your help and support to ensure the future of events like this.
Parking is very limited so please CAR SHARE WHEREVER POSSIBLE
We will be asking cars coming from the A31 to park in the Stoney Cross Plain/Stoney Cross car parks (see blue arrows) and cars coming from the Forest side to park in the Janesmoor Pond car parks (see yelow arrows). All parking areas are within a 6/8 minute walk (or a short warm up run) from the start/finish areas. The start/finish area is indicated by the green arrow.
Please ensure that you follow the directions of our parking marshals at all times and park as instructed.
We may take pictures of any vehicles/runners abandoning cars on the verges and supply these to their running clubs as we do not want to put the future of this race into question.
We are hoping that the having 3 major clubs as the drop out clubs for this event will assist with the parking concerns.
