Race 3 – Dibden Inc – 6th November

What a wonderful morning for a great race! ¬†Thank you Hardley, we loved your new route (despite the fact Mick Anglim said there were 3 hills, and there were 4, which blew my 3 hill race strategy right out of the window…..) It’s ok Mick, you’re forgiven as it was such a lovely morning ūüėČ

I’m pleased to say the Ladies’ results are all present and correct, but I am missing male position 21. I’d appreciate it if anyone can help. ¬†The results are up, with Man 21 missing. Please note, the Male ticket 78 was not given out, so all men with numbers after that have gone up one position.

Judging by all the comments, I think we can safely say that today’s CC6 was a great success. ¬†This is what you said:

  • great course well organised thanks
  • Another beautiful Sunday morning run, friendly marshals and CAKE! What more could you want. Thank you Hardley
  • What a glorious morning, I think this was the driest Dibden course in memory, unfortunately the absence of rain and reduction in mud doesn’t seem to flatten the hills at all!!! ¬†Mind, the cake stall seems to be getting bigger, well done Hardley
  • Thanks to Hardley for a great raceThe race was really well-organised by Hardly with loads of friendly marshals (and music) all the way along. ¬†We are loving the CC6 and can’t wait for the next one!

Parking map

Parking:  As parking is limited here we request that you car share wherever possible. Parking on the tracks of the Inclosure (SO42 7YR) is particularity limited and therefore this will be reserved for those who car share to the event. Note: If parking here please relocated your car to the car park if you plan to stay on after the race.  Parking before the race is not permitted in the Dibden Inclosure car park as this is used by other members of the public.

Further parking is available a few minutes walk from start on Nash Road, West Road and North Road in Dibden Purlieu and in a public car park on Oak Road (SO45 4PH). See the attached map showing parking locations. There have been some issues around parking for events held here before and so I ask that you stick to these areas and park considerately (e.g. do not block driveways). There is a traffic light crossing to take you across the main road and into the starting area.

The Heath pub (SO45 4PW) (just across the road from the start) have also agreed to provide race parking for anyone that intends to buy breakfast there afterwards (served till 11am, menu attached). If you wish to use this option then please let them know when you park up as they will need to plan for possible numbers.

Facilities: There are no toilets or showering facilities available.

Notes:  As with all the forest courses, please be aware that there will be other members of the public using the area, dog walkers and horse riders etc. so please show courtesy.

Please listen to the marshals out on the course as they will be alerting you to obstacles such as uneven ground, fallen tress, roots, etc.
