Here are the details for this season’s first Division 1 race hosted by Orion Harriers, starting at 7.30 pm
The race HQ is at our clubhouse, Bury Road, Chingford, London E4 7QJ. There is no parking or drop-off at the Clubhouse, but there is a City of London car park on Bury Road, 400m or so south of the Clubhouse. This is no longer free, and charges must be paid via Ringgo. Entry to the car park closes at 8 pm, but the exit gate will remain open.
The nearest station is Chingford, 10 minutes walk away. Trains every 15 minutes from Liverpool St and Walthamstow Central. There is also free on-street parking near the station.
The course will retain the minor changes to the start and finish we introduced last year. The start will be 100m down the main ride opposite the clubhouse. The course then continues for about 2 miles on the rides, follows a 2-mile loop on the road, and the returns to the clubhouse via the first 2-mile route in reverse. Once runners reach the clubhouse (the old finish), they will turn left and continue down the rides for a further 300 yards or so, and finish on the ride as it opens onto the plain (map of the route on Strava: https://www.strava.com/routes/3089944825055607266 — MWL course 2022)
Finishers can then return to the clubhouse along Bury Road. Changing rooms, showers, bag drop and refreshments will be at the clubhouse.
We look forward to seeing you all on 17 May. Feel free to ask me any questions
