Race details

Start: 10:30am

Course: Both women and men will run approx 5.5 miles. There will be one small lap and two large laps. The course is mostly across open downland and is very hilly. Watch out for rabbit holes! It is suitable for spikes, studs or trail shoes.

All entries are taken on the day. However, if you intend to run, it would be helpful if you could add your name to the Serpie planner so we have an idea of how many people are planning to be there. Also, please wear a Serpie top.

Please note that all muddy footwear must be removed before entering the sports centre, especially spikes.

The sports centre management would appreciate it if runners would use the rear entrance, nearest the tennis courts, to access the changing areas. This will enable the reception area to remain clear.

There will be an end of season presentation in the Heath Sports Bar after the race. As use of the bar has kindly been donated for free, it would be appreciated if runners could support them in return by purchasing food / refreshments (and not eating your own in the bar!)
