RACE NUMBERS - VERY IMPORTANT
Under UK Athletics Rules race numbers are not be folded, cut or modified in any way. Please complete the requested information on the reverse of your number. This will include any special medical conditions and medications carried. If possible, bring this to the attention of the Race Director on the day. Race numbers must be clearly displayed on the FRONT of vest/t-shirt on day of the race.
TOILETS AND CHANGING
There is toilet and changing facilities but note that showers are limited since they are in a communal area.
Marshfield School PTA will be providing hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks that can be purchased in the Cricket Clubhouse. All profits will go towards raising funds for the school.
Although race mementos are very common at events such as ours we’re a small race which is organised to raise funds for Marshfield School PTA. It’s always a fine balance between ensuring participants feel they have got value for money whilst raising as much money as possible for the school. As organisers we have always taken the decision that providing some sort of snack and some fluid at the end of the race was more important than anything else. However, if funds are available a memento of some sort may be available at the finish line.
DIRECTIONS TO MARSHFIELD CRICKET CLUB
The village of Marshfield is situated approx 7 miles north of Bath and is easily located off the A420 between Bristol and Chippenham. Follow the signs off the A420 into the village of Marshfield. Race parking will be situated at the cricket club and will be signposted from the A420. The address is Marshfield Cricket Club, Broadleys, Ashwicke Road, Marshfield. SN14 8AB.
Prior to the start of the main race Spectators may, if they wish, situate themselves around the main race route, please ask family and friends to be extremely considerate when parking, vehicles should be parked so that they do not obstruct the race route or any of the local resident’s access in any way. The race director strongly advises against, and specifically requests, that vehicles are not driven on the route whilst the race is underway as some of the roads are narrow and this presents a significant hazard to the competitors.
Onsite parking has been arranged at the cricket club and will be signposted from the A420. If parking at the cricket club is not possible (weather dependent) alternative parking has been arranged in the village and will be signposted. Parking is also possible within the village but if you choose this option please be considerate of residents. PLEASE NOTE: Entry to the car park will only be possible until 9:30a.m. This is for safety reasons as the Fun Run starts at 9:45a.m. and we cannot have vehicles arriving as fun runners start their race.
