Event Date: 
Saturday, January 13, 2018 - 13:00

The start/finish is situated on Wimbledon Common adjacent to The Causeway and West Place SW19 4UH. It is near the Fox and Grapes pub on Camp Road.


1.00pm Senior Ladies Division2, two red laps, approx. 8km. Get there by 12.30 to collect your number and warm up.

The course follows paths and tracks on the common starting and finishing at the same place. The paths are mainly flat before crossing Windmill Road, then after entering the woods they are undulating finally climbing the hill up to the Windmill. Some of the paths can be muddy, others stony so trail shoes are best although some prefer spikes.

There are no toilets or changing facilities at the start. The nearest toilets are situated next to the Windmill café about 10 minutes walk away from the start.

There may be very limited parking spaces along The Causeway and Cannizaro Road. Otherwise there are meters on some of the local roads off the south side of the common.

The 93 bus to Wimbledon Village from Putney, alight at the War Memorial. The nearest mainline station is Wimbledon, then either catch the 200 bus up the hill, or a 20 minute walk to the start.

St John Ambulance volunteers will be in attendance situated near the start. If there is an emergency on the far side of the course, the Ranger can be contacted on 020 8788 7655.

There are no declarations on the day. All athletes should have been entered on the surrey league list before the race. They must wear the same numbers for each of the four Surrey League matches.

All clubs are asked to volunteer at least one helper to assist with marshalling etc. If there are enough people, marshalling duties may be rotated. Please provide email addresses to; charlesdickinson@hotmail.co.uk in the week prior to the race so that marshalling positions can be allocated
