Race Information

2022 General Info – for reference until full 2023 Details Published

We are hoping that our event in September 2022 will be “back to normal” although numbers and chip timing bands will again be posted a week before the race, and we will keep the 8 start zones based on your predicted finish times, race results based on chip timing NOT gun time. We will provide further information during the coming months and INFO PACKS will be sent out to entrants by email a few weeks before the race.

Car parking is available in several car parks around the town (fee payable), although these may fill quickly.

There is also parking on some roads in the town. Local runners are requested to walk or cycle to the event. Portable toilets will be available next to the public toilets near Abbey End and a couple of portaloos on the course.

Please arrive arrive ready to run and go to your start area in Warwick Road approximately 10 minutes before the start and disperse from the finish area as soon as possible when finished. There are several cafes/bars in Abbey End at the finish.

We will have a INFORMATION stand in Abbey End for anyone not receiving their number or chip in the post and any last minute entries (agreed with the Organiser).

The course will be entitely closed to traffic (although cyclists seem to ignore this). Only bone conduction ear phones will be allowed in the race. There will be water stations approximately every 2 miles where plastic free cups will be available. Please dispense these in large bags provided just after each water station.

Medals will be back in 2022 AS WELL as our long sleeved technical tops (but what colour will it be in 2022????).

The Route

The route follows a 1 lap course Starting and Finishing at the clock tower in Kenilworth and going through Kenilworth Castle. The route is described as “undulating and interesting”.
