Car Parking: Car parking is available at the test track, alongside Barnbow Social Club. Please don’t use the Social Club car park unless directed by a marshal: we need to ensure that sufficient parking is kept available for other patrons of the Social Club. With the numbers attending our races now, car parking is becoming a major issue: please ‘car share’ if possible!
The Course: See course maps below.
The course is suitable for spikes* (unless it is frozen), studs or trail shoes (unless it is very muddy). It is undulating, with several short ascents and descents. There are some tight turns, some narrow sections and the main hazard underfoot is tree roots.
The Senior course will consist of 1 lap of the route shown in red on the map.
The Junior 1 Mile course will consist of 1 lap of the route shown in blue on the map.
* There are a few short ‘rocky’ sections on the course: please be aware if this if you are considering wearing spikes!
After The Race: Changing facilities, results and food will be available at Barnbow Social Club. The PECO XC League Presentations will follow the Relay Presentations. These will start with the Junior Presentations at 1.30pm, and conclude with the Senior Presentations from 2.00pm onwards.
