Race Start

The Race start is a 5 minute walk so give yourself time and starts on the Clearings (stores.burst.carbon). The Clearings is left for re-wilding apart from mown avenues, so place your flags, kit stores near to the Lakers flag.


Slightly different to the map and previous years we start and finish on the green dot, we do a lap of the clearings, then off into the woods. We return to the clearings at 5k, then do another lap of the woods finishing uphill at the bottom of the clearings.

The course be checked on the day, but recently parts of the course have been very muddy, so good trail shoes are recommended.

There will be marshals and plenty of tape out.



There are showers in the stadium, if you wish to use them please pay the fee at the reception desk.

Buns, tea, coffee and of course beer will be available in the Phoenix Bar.

There will also be a raffle, results, and the prize-giving, with prizes for the first 3 in each 5-year age category plus spot prizes.
