Dear runner

Many thanks for entering our very first night trail 10k race which takes place on Saturday at 6pm.
Venue is 7 Lakes Country Park in Crowle, just 2 minutes off junction 2 of the M180. Post code is DN17 4JS.
We are extremely grateful to 7 Lakes Country Park for allowing us to use their fantastic facilities as well as for some great logistical support.

Ill/injured
If you are ill/injured please do not turn up on race day. We have medical provision in place for unforeseen issues, not those that can be reasonably avoided…thanks.

Transfer of places
We will allow free transfer of entries up until 3pm this Thursday. Instructions on how to do so can be found >>>HERE

Parking
There is ample on-site parking for all the runners. Those who want a swift departure are asked to be aware that the car park exit does cross over the race route, where we will have marshals guiding you out.

Registration
This will start at 430pm in the bar at 7 Lakes Country Park. Here you will collect your runner number, long sleeved tee shirt as well as a gift from us to you!
Please remember to bring safety pins with you and write your emergency contact details on the back of your number.
Those who have pre-ordered soup will be provided with a token which will be served in the bar afterwards.

Changing facilities
There are very limited changing facilities on site. Please do not get changed in the bar as members of the public really don’t want to see you in all your glory whilst they are tucking into their scampi and chips!
Parking is all within a short walk of the start/finish, so there is no bag store on site.

The Course
This is all within the confines of 7 Lakes Country Park. At present it is very muddy, even slippery in places. The course itself goes through some lovely woodland, where there may be hidden branches etc. Please make sure you choose appropriate footwear.
Headphones are not to be used as you will not be able to hear the instructions of race marshals….please respect this.
The course itself will be very well marked…so you wont get lost!!!!
The course is 2 laps and you will pass through the finish area at the end of the first lap, where you will be able to grab some water.
You will also receive a bottle of water once you have finished the race….thanks to Lincolnshire Co-op.

Torch
Please make sure that you arrive with your torch fully charged. We do not have any spares and you will not be allowed to run without one ,as it will be far too dangerous.

Unable to finish the race
Really important…if for whatever reason you do not finish the  race you MUST go and speak to one of the team in Race HQ as we need to know that everyone has finished safely….thanks

Presentation
This will be held in the bar as soon as we are able to do so.

Timing
This will be done on gun to tape time. Results will appear >>>HERE as soon as they become available.

Race Crew
We are still in need of a few more race crew volunteers to fill the team. If you know of anyone who would like to support, please ask them to e mail laura@tape2tape.co.uk

Race entries
If you know of anyone who still wishes to enter the race, there are a handful of places left. These are limited as we have ordered just enough tee shirts.

7 Lakes Country Park

Our hosts at 7 Lakes have been exceptionally supportive of this brand new night race. Their venue is perfect for a torch race as it takes in their beautiful grounds which include woodlands, footpaths and trails.

Full details of their site facilities can be found  >>> HERE

7 Lakes can be contacted  on 01724 712211

Safety

Running in darkness can prove to be more demanding on the body than daytime running. As part of our race licencing conditions every participant must wear a head torch and have hi visibility/reflective clothing.

We will assist to make it safe with plenty of marshals who will wear hi viz and carry glo sticks. The signage will be reflective as will your runner numbers.

The course will be very well marked out, with lead/sweep cyclists helping you around.
