Marshals are stationed at critical points around the course. They are there to ensure your safety and that you do not get lost. Please follow their instructions at all times.
If you become ill or injured during the event, there are first aiders as well as the marshals around the course, all of whom are in contact with event control. Either stop at one of these points yourself or ask another competitor to request assistance for you. Please remember to give good instructions of where you are and what the problem is.
There are a number of things to watch out for around the course:
Mouse Lane, which you enter near the beginning of the race, is very narrow with high banks on either side. It is prone to having surface water flowing down it from the hills even in dry weather. There are also a number of houses along the lane that occasionally generate traffic during the race. Please remember that vehicles have the right of way – not you!
The other tracks and paths of the course are either rutted, muddy and pot holed dirt, slippery chalky paths or flint tracks. The paths are very uneven and often have exposed tree roots going across them. Occasionally fallen trees will partially block the paths. Every effort will be made to cut these back or have them removed but this may not always be possible and runners may be required to climb over, duck under or go around these obstacles.
Please also be prepared to stand aside if faster runners need to overtake on narrower parts of the course.
There are a number of gates and fences around the course that we arrange to be opened on the night but there are also a number of gates and posts that cannot be removed so please take care.
The course has some very steep up and down slopes that can be VERY SLIPPERY. There are gates, tree roots, pot holes and slippery paths on the slopes. Please take care and avoid going too fast on the downward slope towards the end of the race.
Car Parks are available at Tanyard Lane and Fletchers Croft. Please do not try to park at the finishing field as parking is severely limited and will be needed for race officials and First Aid.
Finally please – NO DOGS.
Steyning Athletic Club wants everyone to have an enjoyable race.
We also want this to be an accident free event.
TAKE CARE AND HAVE FUN!!!
