New start/finish areas at Trionium's Box Hill races

Posted: Yesterday at 22:32

Yes, parking charges for runners waived for race day, most likely via downloadable voucher,displayed in car windscreen. Thanks for the positive feedback, esp. Worlds End Laner. Munro entries will be open before Christmas!

Allowed to run on it, but just not allowed to use the bottom of it as a start/finish area. We'll just be running down the slope, doing a turnaround, and then back up it again.

Thanks Muttley - it was definitely a case of 'make changes or no events.' What cannot be changed must be endured. You could cycle (nice warm-up) or trudge up the hill (again, nice warm-up!).

Mr Encona... the next Picnic Marathon will be in June 2016, with the date only set in around September 2015, but it will probably be Sunday 19th or 26th June 2016.

This is always a laugh... and is preceded by the famous Wife Carrying Race. Anyone interested?

The National Trust has told us that we cannot use the bottom of the Burford Slope as the start/finish area for the races any more, due to the presence in this environmentally-sensitive area of protected bee orchids. There were also some concerns about traffic congestion at the bottom of the Zig Zag Road.

The start and finish areas for the Knacker Cracker 10k, the Midsummer Munro Half Marathon and the Picnic Marathon will now be at the top of Box Hill, next to the Old Fort. Although this means that we will not have the famous long downhill finish, all the races will still incorporate this as part of the course (just not at the end). It also means that we will have much easier (free) parking, and much better toilet, spectator and café facilities.

The Knacker Cracker will still start at 11am, as it always has. However, the Picnic Marathon and Midsummer Munro Half will both need to start together at 8am on the sunday (they have previously started at 2pm and 4pm respectively on the Saturday). That will change the race dynamic slightly - the Picnicers will get support in the first half but not so much in the second half.

It was a case of 'Hobson's Choice.' The alternative to these changes was to not organise the races at all!

The extra distance over 10k is not great - maybe only an extra 400m - but the fact is that the extra distance includes about 200 extra very steep steps!

The Fun Run is full - no entries on the day.

Online entry for the 10k is now closed. A limited number of places can be reserved by emailing rob@trionium.com, for £25 cash on the day. (Email with full name, gender, age on race day, shirt size, any medical stuff, club).
