Saturday 24th March 2018
Ashbourne Leisure Centre: Clifton Road, Ashbourne, United Kingdom
Returning for 2018 after a sell out inaugural race this year: the latest addition to our 10k/10mile series; Ashbourne 10.
Turn points are set up along the route at 2.5k, 5k and 5mile & waterstations will be along the route.
The route isn't flat as your outward section is a very gradual incline, but for every uphill there is a downhill! The 2nd half of your race is all set on a gradual decline which should feel fantastic once the legs have warmed up & you can get those feet flying! The total climb for the 10mile is just under 400ft (123m).
The 5k run / walk is for all levels. This event can be a gentle stroll with the family or a race to get your 5km PB.
The ground has a hard surface. It is firm & even in most places - The Tissington Trail is open to the public & there may be walkers & cyclists & horse riders using the trail.
Car parking - there will be NO car parking available at Ashbourne Leisure Centre as the finish line & race village are held in the car park. Please use a public car park in Ashbourne. There are limited free parking spaces (max 4 hours) at Halfords just a few minutes walk away at Waterside Retail Park, Ashbourne, DE6 1DG. Please car share to save our environment.
We welcome Canicross Runners across all distances - water stations will be provided to dogs regularly out on course & at Race Village. Your dog will need to wear a running harness & be used to running with you. Remember they need to train too! Don't expect your dog to run a distance just because you can! Please clean up after your dog & keep your dog on a lead at all times. Please book on in the correct distance (5k/10k/10m) & use the Canicross category.
The usual SBR Events fun is included and the following will be present at the event:
Full details are on the website. Race start is 9:30am (staggered starts) with registration opening at 08:00am. The course is an out and back along Tissington Trail starting and finishing at Ashbourne Leisure Centre.
Car parking - there will be NO car parking available at Ashbourne Leisure Centre as the finish line & race village are held in the car park. Please use free parking at Halfords just 10 minutes walk away at Waterside Retail Park, Ashbourne, DE6 1DU or other local car parks in Ashbourne. Please car share to save our environment.
ID is not required, but you must sign the waiver. We do recommend you bring some layers as the weather can be temperamental in early March. As for shoes, the trail is made of compacted stone so you should be good to run in road shoes.
