Whitchurch Hill, nr Pangbourne, Reading
This looks good, chaps ... another new race just arrived in the calendar. Appears to be mostly off-road along woodland trails. Pangbourne and Whitchurch are a lovely part of the world although it's fair to say the local terrain is a little - how can I put this gently? - sloping in places.
And you get a medal. I might just have to do this one, would be rude not to.
Sounds nice but clashes with Sam Run which cubs can do too and occasionally I like to include the family in my obsession.
Shame, I could carry on stalking you round Berkshire runs!
Thanks for starting off a forum for the race. The course is probably about 40% off-road with the remainder on v.quiet tarmac lanes. I managed to get out for a lap last night and the course was stunning, esp. the bluebells in the woods - I'll try and take the camera out v.soon and upload some pictures on the race website to give a pre-race fly thru.
A photo fly thru of the course is now on the front page of the website: www.toadhall10k.com
The pictures are more of the off-road bits as they make for better images! The start/finish is at the village green shown at the end - you need to imagine that beer tent & BBQ waiting........
That looks pretty cool. Complete with psychedelic transitions
I have a form at home (handed out at the Shinfield). Must fill it in.
Personally I'm always happy to pay the extra for online entry (subtle hint!) but not everyone is ...
We're getting a lot of feedback re online entry and therefore we will hopefully have this option up and running on the race website by mid week.
Is it still 20p to get over the bridge?
I live nearby and its great running countryside - "sloping in places" is fair but the country views and terrain will more than make up for it and it starts/finish at same point - looks well organised and good to support a new event - I will certainly enter,
Online entry is now up and running via the website www.toadhall10k.com
I believe it's still 20p to cross the bridge - the company wants to raise it to 40p to be able to pay upfront for a replacement structure but a local campaign has forced a public enquiry
online entry seems to work - signed the wife and meself up.
race looks a good. is there really gonna be a beer tent at the end?? with real ale??
This sounds better all the time - and is within cycling range of Muttley Towers in sunny Caversham.
As regards pints after the race, mine's a Tetleys (tea, not beer!)
A nice run through the countryside ... tea and cakes ... BBQ .... what's not to like?
Online entry quick and easy. I'm in!
yes received thanks
Just seen the entry form for this . Looks great , my kind of event.
Must remember to get the entry off
