The course was measured on 8 June 17 by Rob Cope, a member of the association 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.

2016 Race results

27th July 2016

Due to a marshalling error, the race results cannot be relied upon for the purposes of prize-giving, course records, or the NSRRA league. Under the circumstances we have withdrawn most of the tables that we usually list for interest and have removed the rankings from the Finishers’ list.

The Fun Run had no such issues and the results for this can be seen below in full.
