The course was measured on 19 May 17 by Rob Cope, a member of the Assosiation of UK Course Measurers and was certified accurate. He was accompanied by club member, Ian Hodkinson

 

Many runners use their GPS units to check the courses and although they are a useful guide they are not as accurate as an official measured course.

Here is one of the emails we had about the event.

 

 

To everyone involved with last nights event I would just like to say a huge thank you. Incredibly well organised and a great course. The atmosphere was just wonderful. All of my 4 kids loved it [too young to run at the moment] and the end bit is a brilliant way for the families to watch a bit of running - even if it it did nearly kill me [blew up with about 200m to go]!!!!

 

You could teach the National Relays a thing or two about how to stage a proper meeting.

 

Long live this kind of racing.

 

Thanks again,
