IMPORTANT: ROAD CROSSINGS, HAZARDS AND OTHER POINTS
- Please note that the race involves the crossing of several roads. The crossing points will be marshalled but marshals are NOT able to stop the traffic. It is YOUR responsibility to cross safely. Please take particular care especially when crossing into the finish. Losing a place is better then a life or a limb.
- The course is multi-terrain. This means there are bumps and lumps and stumps and branches and all the hazards of the countryside. You know that, that’s why you are doing the race, but take care. The descent of Incombe Hole (a little before the second water station) can be very slippery when wet and Pitstone Hill (just after the second water station) has a lot of rabbit holes; don’t go down one.
- Please show consideration to other users of public footpaths and rights of way.
- Entrants are not permitted to wear headphones and anyone doing so may be disqualified.
- Please wear your number pinned to your chest, not on your back, shorts, socks, belt, hat or in your hair. It needs to be clearly visible as you cross the finish line.
- No dogs allowed.
- First aid will be available at the start and finish, at the Bridgewater Monument (approx 3 miles and the top of the big hill) and at Pitstone Hill car park (approx 6 miles). There will also be the water stations at these points.
- When leaving the car park if the race is still in progress you will be asked to turn RIGHT in order to avoid crossing the race route.
- Please keep an eye on the race Facebook page for any last minute instructions.
Want to see what you are letting yourself in for? See the route page.
- Is there a cut off time for completing the course?
– There is no official cut off, and ‘not fast’ runners are very welcome. Most runners complete the course in under 2 hours 15 mins.
- Should I wear spikes?
– No. There are sections of road at the start / finish. Trail shoes are ideal, if you have them.
- Will there be a bag drop facility at the Cricket Club?
– We are putting a tent up for runners to leave bags in while they run, albeit at their own risk. The tent will be outside the cricket club, near the number collection desk.
- I missed getting a place. How can I be sure of getting a place next year?
– The race sells out faster every year. If you ‘like’ the Ridgeway Run Facebook page you will be one of the first to hear when entries open in May. We only post about half a dozen times a year, so you won’t be inundated.
