FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What time at the Red Admiral?  ///feasting.gratitude.grid
Approx. 18:30

How do we know what time to get to the start?
The information in the sections, above, will give you a good estimate of the handover times.
During the day I’ll update this page with revised estimates based on the actual times of previous handovers.
Please arrive at your start time approx. 15 mins before the forecast time which I will show during the day.

The times that show as 0:00 will be updated during the day.

How do we manage getting from one place to the other? Do we we back the way we came or do we drop a car off at the finish then drive back to the start then run between the two then drive to the other car after?
This is the way to do it. ENSURE that you have your keys safely with you!!
I’ve provided some What3Words links to suggested parking / hand over points. If you have the chance please recce your route before the day.

What happens if people drop out, so only one person available for a leg?
Please keep an eye on the website up to the day and also respond to any texts / calls I try to make to you before you are due to go.
It is essential that there are at least 2 runners per leg, so a ‘only one person’ leg will be void and I’ll ask you to join another leg.

MAPS

This is a self navigating event following the Leicestershire Round.

A folder of information has been provided by Simon Mayes.
Simon, from West End, ran the route in stages in 2019 to prepare his club members.
He’s kindly provided us with the files he produced for that event.
This includes GPX files. Here are a few ways to view the files:-

If you have a MacOS device (Macbook, Mini, Mac) there is a free app on the Apple store called Router.
For other devices you can upload the gpx files to outdooractive.com
There’s a lot more information provided by this site and it does require a sign up with a valid email address.

The files are provided ‘As is’ and things may have changed in 4 years. The info provided is for guidance / general information and you are still recommendd to use the routes that I have outlined to cross the A46 and the A50

Requirements

Minimum of two people at all times

Fully charged phones

What3words app on phones (for me to help you)

OS Maps (subscription service) recommended

You are adults – you are responsible for your safety

The runners coming IN to the changeover are to notify control as soon as possible after change over
