Mid Week League – Mob Match
Mob Match race in the 2018 Mid Week League Series.
Race starts at 7:45pm
Please arrive early as car parking can be an issue and you need to allow time to walk to the meeting point, and collect a number for this series if you don’t already have one.
You must be a club member to run and will need a Trent Park vest or T-shirt (available from the club shop).
Midweek Road Racing League Mob Match Race 5
Garden City Runners assisted by Herts Phoenix are pleased to host the MWRRL Mob Match and Series Presentation on Thursday 12th July 2018, details of the course and race HQ as follows:
Start Time: 7.45pm, maximum time limit 90 minutes, the first 5km to be comfortably completed by 8.30pm/45 minutes after the gun
Location: Sir Frederic Osborn School (old GC10 HQ), Herns Lane, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 2AF. There are changing facilities and plenty of toilets some of which are located in the nearby Sports Centre. The nearest station is Welwyn Garden City 1½ miles away.
Parking: The main Car Park at Panshanger Golf Club/The Fairway Tavern AL7 2ED. However, that cannot take every car and so can those coming from the east go to the free Public Car Park on Moors Walk AL7 2BQ. Those from the south please use the streets of Swiftfields plus Watchmead AL7 1LY. All of these car parks are about the same distance away from the race HQ.
Garden City Runners & Herts Phoenix (plus very late arrivals from other clubs only): at Sir Frederic Osborn School AL7 2AF
Strictly no parking at the Sports Centre or side streets in proximity.
See enclosed map for locations
Start & Finish: Start is a 5 minute walk away and we all gather in the passage before Panshanger Drive for the race briefing. Do not go to the actual start which is around the corner. So the end of the passage is not the actual start (do not press the start button on your watch there). The passage is quite narrow and it is important to position yourself in the appropriate place according to the boards displaying expected finishing time. After the briefing the very fastest runners are walked around the corner to the start. The finish is on the field by the race HQ.
Distance: 10km Certified as Accurate 17/249(renewed 27/2/18), Race Permit ARC18/190 and conducted under ARC rules which state that headphones must not be worn.
Route: Mildly undulating lolly pop two lapper, see attached map, with two opportunities for water. All on tarmac except the final 100 metres on grass field, cycleways and pavement used. The course is open to pedestrians and vehicles so obey marshals instructions and run responsibly. There are numerous turns and in that respect we require additional marshals (briefing anytime from 6pm to 7pm) plus helpers before/after the race. Do email the race director as given below, and thank you for your much appreciated support.
Refreshments: Complimentary refreshments will be provided after the race at the Race HQ prior to the presentations.
We look forward to seeing you at the MWRRL Mob Match and Series Presentation.
Any queries, please email Race Director Peter Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01707 375633 (afternoons and evenings best).
Yours in Sport
Garden City Runners (and Herts Phoenix)
