Itchen Spitfires Running Club and Southampton Athletic Club are looking forward to welcoming you to the first event of the new RR10 season, which takes place on 19th April 2017 at Royal Victoria Country Park, Netley.
The start/finish is on the main field next to the historic Chapel, but due to extensive building works taking place, the start will be on the south side of the field towards the water.
The route is approximately 4.6 miles in total, consisting of two complete laps, with a third, shorter lap to finish. The route has been amended from that used previously, with the full route available here:
The race will start at 7.00pm PROMPTLY, so please arrive in good time to facilitate this, as we will lose the light if we start the race any later. Usual race rules apply.
The terrain consists of a combination of tarmac paths / roads, gravel tracks and woodland trails (with one small flight of woodland steps), so you can expect the usual hazards of roots, uneven trails and low hanging branches. Most hazards will be suitably identified and marshalled, but please be careful whilst running the course.
There is free parking at the event for runners, spectators and helpers, but we do ask that you car share and arrive in good time to prevent congestion. Upon arrival at the park, a marshal will direct you up the LEFT hand road to the free parking location, which is a five minute walk from the start / end location. Please note, that free parking is ONLY available in the designated marshalled area - the public park car parks will incur the usual charges.
