Hi Elaine

I havent actually done that race before, however I have done other races that have started from the Hilton. They usually have parking by the side of the hotel, but you have to pay for this, otherwise park on the surrounding streets. the last race I did from there had number collection at the hotel, but it was clearly signposted. You will be fine, there are always lots of folk about who can help on the day.

Good Luck and enjoy the race. Might see you there

Thanks for the reply

Looking forward to it

My race starts at 11am

What time are you usually required to book in ?

Cheers

Most races send out a number that you pin on your front on the day.
There's no need to book in as such - they don't need to know who is or isn't there.
I'd just make sure you arrive in good time. Allow for traffic delays and parking congestion.

Hi  All

Completed Hilton 10k on Saturday in 1hr 23 mins.  

Pleased with my time as been holding off an injury.

Found other runners very friendly, and race organisers helpfull.

Not as daunting as I thought it would be.

Im now going to  crack on with my training and want to complete Hilton half next September

Thanks to all who sent advise .

Best wishes

Elaine
