Race Information

Race Information - Updated 17th August 2021

START The start is at Chiddingly at 11:00 am.  The road to the start and to Chiddingly Village Hall (to pick up your Pre-Entry Race Number ), and to Chiddingly Cricket Pavilion (for On the Day Entries), is opposite the Six Bells Pub.  Both the Village Hall (for pre-entry race number pick-up) and the Cricket Pavilion (for On the Day entries), will open at 9:30 am, Entries on the day will be taken up to 10:30 am.  Pre-entry race number pick-up will be available up to 10:40 am. See Location Map below.


PRE-RACE GATHERING AREA To help maintain social distancing and to reduce the risk of Covid transmission we would like all runners to gather within the pre-race gathering area indicated within the image below AND NOT to assemble on the narrow lane near the start line. AT PRECISELY 10;58am, we will open the FIVE Starting Pens, with access to the pens ONLY from the rear. There will be a clear passageway to the left of the pens to allow all runners to access their required starting pen based on their expected finish time. There will be no race briefing on the day (See below), and the race will start at PRECISELY 11:00am. The use of the starting pens will reduce the unavoidable start line crowded assembly congestion to less than two minutes duration .




RACE BRIEFING INFORMATION - The roads ARE NOT CLOSED, so please be very cautious of possible approaching vehicles along the route. Headphones are NOT allowed. There is no water station along the race route this year. We have first aid provision at the finish line and within a vehicle following the last runner. Please approach a marshal positioned along the route if requiring first aid assistance.

KIT A kit van will leave the start at 10:55 am.  If you do not have a support vehicle, the Wealdway footpath to Chiddingly is exactly 2 miles and is ideal for a good warm up or warm down (See map below).

RACE NUMBER Race numbers will not be sent out in the post prior to race day. Therefore all pre-entry race numbers must be collected on the morning of the race from race registration, located in Chiddingly Village Hall, near where the race starts. Once you have collected your race number (and safety pins), please wear your race number VISIBLE ON THE FRONT of your vest/shirt. VERY IMPORTANT as we are using bar code scanners to scan your race number this year. At the end of the race you can exchange your number at the Kings Head Pub in East Hoathly for your free pint of 1648 Brewing Co. beer or soft drink courtesy of the Kings Head. 

HEADPHONES AND MP3 PLAYERS Headphones are now banned outright under the UKA Rules of Athletics.  From 1 April 2016 a new rule regarding the wearing of head phones in road races was introduced into the UKA Rules of Competition. "The wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic."
