RR10 Race 9

WADAC would like to warmly welcome all RR10 runners to Race 9 of the 2022 season on Wednesday 3rd August at 7.15pm prompt at Whiteshute Ridge, Badger Farm, Winchester. Parking is at Pitt Park & Ride, Romsey Road, SO22 5SR, further information below. Whiteshute Ridge is behind Sainsburys, in the same location that the CC6 takes place but the course is different. What3Words is ///honestly.interviewer.pastime and can only be reached by foot. The nearest postcode is Badger Farm Community Centre, SO22 4QB. 

Parking: Please car share. Parking is very limited. We suggest that the first 200 cars park at Pitt Park & Ride, (1309 Romsey Road, Winchester, SO22 5SR). Please allow at least 30 minutes to walk to the start from here (it is just over 1 mile). There will be no parking charges for the evening so do not use the machines. You can park in any spaces and can use the school spaces. There will be marshals to guide you over the road at the crossing and then you need to follow Badger Farm Road until the second left, into Meadow Way. From here there are several pedestrian access’s into Sainsburys carpark. Head through the carpark to the left hand side of the store and the path leads up the steps to the Ridge. Once the Pitt Park & Ride has filled please park courteously in the residential streets around Badger Farm, allowing plenty of time to get to the start. Please be aware that there is a 2 hour parking limit at Sainsburys. Sainsburys carpark should only be used if you are planning to shop at the store afterwards but remember the 2 hour time limit!

The course is approximately 5 miles long and it is hilly! It is a 2 lap course and then an uphill finish. The going will be firm and is on grass and narrow paths. This area is very popular with dog walkers and cyclists so please be considerate to others at all times. 

Covid: If you feel unwell, display symptoms of Covid 19 or have been in contact with a positive case, do not attend. 

Facilities: There are no facilities at the race site. There will be lots of cakes at the end for the runners. Please bring your own drinks. 

We look forward to seeing you on the 3rd August at 7.15pm. Emma Carter (WADAC)
