RACE INSTRUCTIONS

Race HQ

The HQ for the event is Beaconsfield Rugby Club at Windsor End, Beaconsfield, accessed from the roundabout in the centre of Beaconsfield Old Town on the A40, post code HP9 2SQ. The clubhouse will be open from 8.00am for a prompt 10.00am start. Please arrive in good time to collect your number & timing chip.

Parking

There is parking opposite the Rugby Club, Please follow marshal instructions. Once this parking is full, please park in Beaconsfield Old Town, a short walk from the Rugby Club.

Please note that there are a few residential roads near the club that will not be available for public parking and marshals will be advising entrants to park elsewhere.

Please car share where possible. Bikes are also welcome.

Changing

The clubhouse has changing rooms and showers. There will a bag drop next to the bar in the clubhouse – please note that bags are left at your own risk.

Race Number

The race number must be attached to the front of your running top. Runners must run with the number and chip allocated to them. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, especially in the event of an accident. This is a condition for entering the race and any runner identified as not doing this will be disqualified and barred from future events.

On the reverse of the race number are details for you to complete for any potential problems during the race. We have to emphasise this fact as it is now a requirement of England Athletics through whom we obtain our race licence. We strongly advise you to complete this information when you pick up your number and chip.

Your race number will also entitle you to £10.00 off any purchase over £100 at Runners Retreat in Farnham Common (discount valid at Farnham Common store ONLY, not Marlow). This is in addition to any club discount applicable.

Toilets

Toilets are in the clubhouse, with five additional ladies toilets outside the clubhouse. Please do not use the bushes in the vicinity. This is a condition for the use of the Estate and the Rugby Club.

Start

The race starts at 10.00 am on the entrance to the Estate so please assemble by 9.50 am. Dress appropriately for the weather and run at your own pace. If you are feeling unwell, do not run. The start is 300m from the clubhouse and there is a need to cross a public road – please take note of marshals’ instructions.

Water

Limited water will be available at the finish. We encourage runners to bring their own water. The race starts and finishes at the same point and so your bottles can be left here at the side of the course.

Spectators

Please be aware that spectators are not permitted within the grounds of the Estate beyond the bridge over the M40. If you have friends and family with you please make them aware of this.

Course

The course is a large 5 mile loop around the Hall Barn Estate, starting and finishing at the same point. Please note that we do not recommend the use of headphones when running as marshals’ instructions may not be heard. We suggest the wearing of suitable running shoes with some grip. Note spikes are not permitted. Please keep an eye on the weather – if there is excessive rain in the days leading up to the race then trail shoes will become preferable.

No dogs or buggies are permitted.

COURSE ROUTE

Chip Timing

Your timing chip is attached to the back of the race number. Make sure you cross the mats both at the start and the finish of the event (but only once).

Marshals

Please obey the marshals’ instructions. They are there for your convenience and safety as any cross country course has many potential risks. Should an accident occur, please ensure that the marshals are informed immediately.

Between marshal points the course will be marked with arrows, small flags or tape on the bushes. No signs mean you are going the wrong way!

First Aid

First aiders will be in attendance at the finish. If you feel unwell, contact a marshal who will arrange help. If you are not a regular runner, please check beforehand with your GP. 

Finish

Once you have crossed the finish line keep moving through the finish area to the marshals to receive your medal and water.

As you will all be aware, the 2020 event was cancelled within weeks of the event. All the plans were in place and the medals had been delivered. I am sure you will agree that disposing of these and re-ordering would be a complete waste of resources. So we have decided that if it is good enough for the Olympics it is good enough for us and you will be presented with a long-delayed 2020 Beaconsfield 5 medal.

Catering

Drinks and snacks will be available in the Rugby Club for runners and spectators from 8.00am onwards. Please note that payment is cashless.

Results

Prizes will be presented at the Rugby Club at 11.30am. The prizes will be as follows:

  • 1st, 2nd and 3rd man and women
  • 1st man and woman in 40-49 category
  • 1st man and woman in 50-59 category
  • 1st man and woman in 60-69 category
  • 1st man and woman in over 70s category

(A runner can only take one trophy)

Note

Entry fees will not be refunded even in the event of circumstances beyond our control leading to the cancellation of this event.

Burnham Joggers wish to express their thanks to the persons and organisations whose support has made this race possible:

Latest Information from our Facebook page

 

A few of us have been out on the Beaconsfield 5 course today, setting up and getting things ready for Monday.It is looking great for a trail run.There are some nettles and uneven terrain in the fields and even with the recent dry weather, there are a couple of puddles! We would recommend road shoes but with good grip / support. There are two areas that have been ploughed which mean we have had to re-route slightly! We think this is going to make the course slightly long. ... See MoreSee Less
