Summer Urban Race and Social – Coldingham

Hoping we have a bit of nice late summer weather to come we’ve organised a Summer Urban Race and Social in Coldingham on Saturday 14 September.
New map.
Venue:  rear of The Anchor in Coldingham, parking is in the car park next to the Park/medical practice centre off School Road, Coldingham.    Map HERE
Registration:  At the rear gate of The Anchor, south east corner of the Park. It leads to their beer garden.
Facilities:  Toilets in The Anchor.
Time:  Starts from 1:30 – 2pm approximately. Extension after 2pm if any adult needs to complete their course before accompanying a junior round afterwards, but can the adult please start promptly at 1:30pm.
Course:  One urban race of about 3.5km (optimum route) for everyone 16 years and older.  Under 16’s can run if accompanied by an adult.  No separate under 16’s course, sorry.
Terrain:  Mainly urban with a small amount of grass.  The main roads through the village can be busy, so care with traffic will be needed.  Hilly in places, a good choice of routes, probably a lot of tourists wandering about.

Entry fees:   £3.50 for Senior members/ £1.50 for Junior members.  Non members £4 and £2.

Social:  The Anchor are providing a burger and salad snack at about 3pm in the beer garden for approx £3.50/£4 a head (price to be confirmed).  Veggie and non-gluten can be provided if they are warned in advance.

Could I please have numbers for both the race and the food, no later than Friday 6 September. There will some leeway with both maps and food on the day but the nearer we know numbers the better.   Non-members welcome.
