Anybody got any info on this. i.e. How hilly is "hilly", how muddy etc.??
Or can someone point me in the direction of a route map......
Hi Pete, just in the process of a couple of route adjustments so the map will be available to view Monday 8th March.
The area is generally very muddy if its been raining but it does dry out pretty quick as it is fairly hilly mainly closer to the start and finish. The hills are quite tough but also quite short and further away from the race HQ it is gently undulating so trail/ off road shoes are advised and showers are available after to wash off the mud (which we are hoping there will be lots of so fingers crossed for early April showers...!!!)
The route does cover road, woodland, parkland, fields and a few styles so it should be very enjoyable and a good challenge, we hope you all have fun out there.
Sounds just my cup of tea. I'm looking forward to it already!
Grreat....We'll update the forum with map details which will hopefully be on our website Monday too www.Raceways.eu
Enjoy the beautiful sunshine today.
Catherine & Martine
Really fancy this.....Any idea how full the race is atm?
We are hoping there will be around 150 and numbers are at 50 with a big leaflet drop at races this weekend and next weekend the numbers usually go up quickly in the last 2 weeks.
It is a beautiful route around paths that look hardly used but some lovely parkland to cross.
Hope to see you there.
Hi, yes it is a completely new route and we love it and yes we are letting people enter on the day, but online or postal entries are £2 cheaper.
Hope we get some more rain so it gets even muddier...!
Hi, been out on the course most of the day so this is a bit of a late reply (and it is very muddy.....)
Best to get to registration for 10am ish.
Look forward to seeing you all there.
Good event, well signposted and hot showers at the finish. Very muddy but a good course. Shame a few more didn't enter.
Thanks Catherine and Martine for a good event!
I really enjoyed it, especially the mud.
However, being an idiot I left my kit in a bag in the changing room, is there anyway to get it back ?
Hi Miserable bleeder (sorry to call you that I am not sure of your name, if you can please email me Catherine@raceways.eu and leave your contact number I will let you know if there has been a bag left but I actually went into all the toilets and showers myself and it didn't jump out at me unless it is well out of the way, we'll check if you can send the email with bag description etc...
Really pleased you enjoyed it.
We'll be in touch about the bag as soon as the wardens have let us know.
Mudness certainly somes up this event! I haven't had this much fun in ages. Well done on organising such a great event, as someone has already posted...shame there weren't a few more entrants (although the queues at the stiles would have been interesting!)
Hi, thank you for all the great comments.
Results can be found at www.stuweb.co.uk and look at all results.
Hop you all enjoyed a well deserved rest today (or easy run....!)
If you're interested, I've set up the route map (as I remember it) on MapMyRun.
I can't vouch for 100% accuracy since my brain was frazzled with oxygen depletion at the time, but I have checked it against the photo of the course map on FB (thanks hightops!). If you think the route is wrong, let me know.
After some teething troubles with the new web galleries the race photos are now available at
Exciting news in that you can now search by race number for your photos once inside the Raceway gallery and three 000 will bring up images with no or obscured race numbers.
I had to have my assistant photographer recovered from the muddy field where he stood for an hour or two - and consquently sank so the mud came over his wellies, he lost one as he tried to extract himself, & tore his trousers in his efforts to get out
Happy viewing & thanks for your patience!
