  • Instructions:

    Changing facilities are limited so students are advised to come ready changed. There will be toilets available but spikes or football boots must absolutely not be worn inside the building. Could all team managers report to me on arrival - I should be found at the finish line.

    The course is suitable for spikes. The course is on grass.

    The course will be marked with flags, cones and tape. Markers should be kept to the runners’ left. Runners should ensure that they are near the start at least ten minutes before the race is due to begin.
