Windmiler Night Race Thursday 20th November 7pm Rugby Club

An experimental night run on the Common that will take place at the normal training time.
There will be NO normal training on this night.

There is the opportunity to do this run as a race, as an individual run or to run as part of a led group.

Meet at the rugby club at 7 for 7.15pm.  The route is about 3.5 miles: a link to the race route, which also shows the route from the rugby club is here: 

Please wear light coloured clothing/hi-viz; you need to wear a head-torch or carry a hand-torch (if you don't have a torch you will not be able to race).   Please wear trail shoes if you have them, be prepared for slippery conditions, carry a mobile if you can; bring a jacket or fleece to put on at the finish (you can leave it at the start).  

We'll go to the Common and return to the rugby club as a group. Any non-members who want to join in will be asked to sign a disclaimer. 

"Running at night is an adventure and you should be aware of the hazards. It will be very dark, unlike the well-lit streets that we normally train on in winter. If you run regularly on the common you will probably have run on the paths we will use but they will look different in the dark - you may need to run more slowly. Do expect and watch out for potholes, tree roots and branches, and mud. Please bring a headtorch (or hand torch), wear light/fluorescent clothing, and carry your phone. If you have trail shoes please wear them.

It would be very helpful if runners planning to take part can e-mail the organizers on so we can get a good idea of numbers. We seem to be OK for marshalls now."
