I f you want to try something different why not have a go at the Yorkshire Pudding event on Nov 1 & 2
(you don't have to do both days) It's running round a town finding controls
How Does This Race Differ From a Standard 10K Road Race?
The main differences are:
· 1 People start at one minute intervals, rather than together
2 You have to navigate your way around the course. There are no marshals or signs on the course to show you the way.
· You pick up the map upon starting, which shows you your course. You must visit each control point in order, and punch each one to prove you have been there.
· The control points consist of a white and orange square flag, sometimes attached to a metal stake, with a small electronic box with a hole, that beeps when you "punch" it.
· You must also punch at the start and the finish. Make sure you clear your SI card before you start, in the appropriate unit, so that it has enough space to record the control points.
· If you miss out any of the controls, or do not punch them in order, you will be disqualified (unless the control is missing due to vandalism.)
You must report to the finish even if you abandon your course - this is a safety feature. (SI cards will be available to hire)
