The start and finish is on the grass area attached to the middle of the Car park at Crowden - GR SK072992. Please car share, we are using a public car park (free) which only has room for a limited number of cars.
There will be a charge of 50p to cover expenses, please bring along the correct change
Please report 2 minutes before your scheduled start time to John Dalton and Jim Paxman for race number, which will be written on your hand. This number to be called out with a smile, and thank you, to the marshalls. Any retirements please inform a check point official or tell another runner that you have retired so the marshalls can know all are accounted for. Note that the west side of Crowden great brook has crags running virtually from CP1 to the northern end of Laddow rocks, take care wherever you descend. Also the finish is down a steep and stoney path so be considerate when elbowing your rivals into the rocks.
The access to Open country is at 067995 and at the finish you must return via the stile at 071995
Have a good outing, the course is relatively short but is rough in places and yet fast at the end, so should prove a good race for the fast runners.
N.B. As we are expecting a glut of finishers around 11:30-ish please shout your number to John and Jim as you finish.
Afterwards the Dog and Partridge on the Woodhead Road (SK178011) is expecting us after 12 noon, we will be in the back lounge so as not to hog the front bars. They are expecting a good number, 50 or so, I have suggested that maybe 20 - 25 might want soup and maybe the same for chip butties as I have no idea who wants to have some food - of course meals are on offer as well. Good idea to stagger arrival if possible to help bar staff and yourselves.
The final start list is now in a separate post Club Champs FINAL Start list - yes final - really
