Queen Elizabeth Country Park: Portsmouth Joggers invite you to SCCL Race 2 at QECP on Sunday 12th November. The course is in the lovely country park with plenty of hills and forest trails. The race will be a single lap with a long flat(ish) start before a nice steep hill to take you into the forest section.
As this is Remembrance Sunday there will be a minutes silence at 11am followed by the start just after 11:01am. The course distance is 5 miles.
Race Meet: The meeting area / finish, is in lower field which you get to by walking past the park visitor centre. There is no shelter in lower field unless your club brings it, so please wear suitable clothing. The start line is a short 2 minute walk up hill from the finish area.
This year we have again contracted a catering company to supply hot drinks, soup and a roll for you to enjoy post race for £2.50
The club will be also be selling cake for 50p in a tent on the bottom field by the finish.
Please stay if you can at the end, provisional race results will be announced at the end – subject to weather conditions.
Facilities: There are limited toilets in the visitor centre – with 500 runners expected the queues could be lengthy – you may want to bring your own tissue paper. There are no showers / changing facilities. If you go into the visitor centre / café please ensure you do not drop mud.
Due to the high risk of trip hazard on the course we have professional first aid for your additional safety. All runners run at their own risk however.
Competition Rules: All runners must wear a Club Vest. No ipods / MP3 permitted. Full race rules (including pace eligibility) at http://www.bobayer.com/trwl/rules/.
The race referee’s decision on a contested line finish is final. Please stay in finish order in the funnel. Take your finish token to your club captain who will complete your team results sheet to be returned with the token to the race scorer who will be in a PJC gazebo in lower field.
Directions: QECP is very easily located off the A3 just south of Petersfield – there are large signs on the A3. Post code PO8 0QE
Car park: Competitors must park in the race car park – there is plenty of space if you park considerately. It will be an enormous help if you can car share where possible. Please do not park in the visitor centre car park or drive down to lower field. The QECP require all cars to pay £1.50 and display a parking ticket. Please help us by bringing the correct change.
Failure to display a car park ticket will result in a parking penalty being applied by QECP.
The race car park is just off the northbound carriageway on the slip road (please do not park on the slip road which is exceptionally dangerous). If you are heading south follow the slip round under the road bridge and up to the car park.
