Tonights 5k Final Arrangements

17 March 2022 - By James Attenborough

Hi all

Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone that has offered to help marshal tonight.

If the marshals could come to the meeting point on Pasture Road (keep walking till you see us, but near the car park on the left as usual) for a hi-viz at about 7.15 and then head to their marshal points (as below) that would be very helpful. If you can no longer come tonight, let me know and I can rejig things.

We will start the 5k as close to 7.30 as possible. If any runners would like to do some warm up drills before the time trial starts, we will do these at 7.20 in the same place as above and then head to the start (further down Pasture Road from Tesco) just before 7.30.

Some of the street lights on Freebournes were out on Tuesday; we have added an extra marshal point in the area, but can you please ensure you have a hi viz and/or a reflective top and, if possible, a head torch or body torch for safety.

Marshal Points

A – Patrick Hinchliffe, Angela Read – Freebournes Road near Moss Road. The streetlights are out and there are a lot of roots in the pavement. If you could spread yourselves out (in eyesight) and have torches if possible and keep a general eye on safety please.

B – Dan Griffiths- roundabout junction Freebournes Road and Colchester Road. Please direct runners onto the main road.

C – Clarice Sanderson and Kevin – traffic light junction Newland Street and The Grove. Please direct the runners off of the main road and towards the Grove.

D – Kerry Townsend and Beth Shippey – roundabout junction The Grove and Barwell Way. Please guide the runners across the roundabout and alert them to traffic.

E – DJ – roundabout junction The Grove and Pasture Road. Please direct runners onto Pasture  Road and towards lap 2 / the finish.

Start/Finish – James Attenborough and Colin Short


Any queries or issues before tonight, drop me a message.

Otherwise, see you later!
