Tonight’s Winter 5k (24.11.22) – Final details

24 November 2022 - By Jodee Mayer

Hi all

Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone that has offered to help marshal tonight and to Karen and Sasha for being our RD team.

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. We do not have any spare marshals, and so if you can no longer marhsal tonight please let Karen and/or Sasha know as soon as possible (I am about to be driving for several hours so will be of no use!). If you could bring a torch of some sort as well, that would be really helpful.

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.

There are some works going on at Freebournes at the moment and, as per usual, some of the street lights are out; 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 – Sarah & Liz – roundabout junction Freebournes Road and Colchester Road. Please direct runners onto the main road.

B – Kerry & Leanne – traffic light junction Newland Street and The Grove. Please direct the runners off of the main road and towards the Grove.

C – Ian & Graham – roundabout junction The Grove and Barwell Way. Please guide the runners across the roundabout and alert them to traffic.

D – Heydon & Patrick – roundabout junction The Grove and Pasture Road. Please direct runners onto Pasture  Road and towards lap 2 / the finish.

Start/Finish/Timing – Karen & Sasha

Any queries or issues before tonight, please contact Karen or Sasha.

Happy running!
