Date & Time
Date: 19th October 2016
Meet Time: 14:30
Race Time: 15:15
One lap women (4K), two laps men (8K).
The tents will be set up towards the north east of the athletics track. Athletes should first go to the track clubhouse if they need to change.
Mostly grass (70%) with some trail (30%). The course starts with a steep hill before looping around the heath and back down the same hill towards the west of the athletics track. The grass areas are the kind that if the weather is good are like running on good football pitches (firm ground covered by grass), which means if we have heavy rain leading up to the race: expect mud. Spikes will serve you well.
There are toilets, showers and changing facilities in the club house of the athletics track. There are also lockers, but not enough for all runners.
By tube: Closest tube is Belsize Park. The track is about a 20m walk from there.
By car: the postcode to drive to is NW5 1QR. The roads around the side of the track usually have some parking spaces. Be careful to read the signage to avoid paying fees.
By Rail: The track is a short walk from Hampstead Heath and Gospel Oak stations.
