Registration will be in the northern car park near the beacon so if coming up the hill turn first left , just past the toilet block where the road bends to the right. If the first car park is full there is parking further along.

Long Course - Mass start For a change the long course will have a mass start. The aim is to get everybody who wants to run this registered by 7pm for a start at 7.10. The course has butterfly loops which will be run in different orders to break up the runners , there are 36 map variants , you will visit 2 controls 4 times each. You will be directly racing your competitors , first across the finish line wins. Encourage your arch rivals to come along and race them.

Further details including timing will be available on the day. Late arrivals will still be able to run individually but will not be classified with those who started together.

Planner/Organiser - Mark Rookledge, markrookledge@mac.com - I could probably do with some help at registration if anybody is available.





Please find attached some further details for the long course at Burton Dassett tomorrow.
It has been pointed out that the nights are drawing in so , as previously started , you will need to be registered by 7pm if you want to run this and we will get going as soon as possible after.
I aim to have everything set up by 6pm so if anybody wants to start the short or medium courses early they should be able to .
Hope to see you there
