Winter 5k 21/03/24 – Final Instructions

21 March 2024 - By Jodee Mayer

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 me, but near the car park on the left as usual (www ///passively.dwell.panels)) to check in by about 7.20 and then head to their marshal points (as below) that would be very helpful.

NB Marshals  – we do not have the hi-viz jackets for tonight; please bring your own reflective item and torch!

If you can no longer marshal tonight please let me know as soon as possible.

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 near WWW object.aside.mush) just before 7.30.

As usual, there are works on Freebournes and some of the street lights are out; there is also a HUGE pothole in the road. Runners ENSURE you have a hi viz and/or a reflective top and, if possible, a head torch or body torch. 

Marshal Points

A – Colesy and Andrew R – Freebournes Road pothole – this isn’t the exact location – I will WWW it on my recce this evening and confirm.

B – Shane and Lisa – roundabout junction Freebournes Road and Colchester Road. Please direct runners onto the main road.

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

D – Angela R, Celine and Beth – roundabout junction The Grove and Barwell Way. Please guide the runners across the roundabout and alert them to traffic.

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

Start/Finish – Jodee and Karen

Any queries or issues before tonight, please let me know.

Happy running!
