FINAL INSTRUCTIONS – TRACK 5K 14/09/23
14 September 2023 - By Jodee Mayer
Please see below for volunteer positions (thank you all!) and race start times.
The track address is Panfield Lane, Braintree, CM7 1FF – there is parking on site, but it can get busy so please leave time to find a spot and park courteously!
5k is 12.5 laps of the 400m track. You will start at the halfway mark. After you pass the lap counters for the first time you will have 12 laps to go.
PLEASE NOTE: GPS is not reliable on the track and your watches will unlikely be accurate unless you have set up and calibrated the track feature which is now on some watches (if you haven’t used this feature before, your watch is still unlikely to be right). The lap counters will let you know when you have 1 lap remaining.
Race vests are optional (but encouraged!).
Any queries or issues before 6.30pm please call or message me on 07725 269270.
Thanks, and see you later.
Race 1 – 7:15pm – Please get to the track for 7pm in order to get your race number, and be ready and warmed up by 7:10. You must not use the track to warm up, as another group will be using it.
Race 2 – 7.45pm – Please get to the track by 7:30pm in order to get your race number, and be ready and warmed up by 7.40. You must not use the track to warm up, as race 1 will still be taking place!
Many thanks to volunteers from both clubs.
Please arrive from 7pm; if you could bring a pen (and maybe a clipboard or something similar so you have something to lean on!) that would be helpful, but I will bring some pens.
