Weather forecast looking like a bit of a mixed bag for Saturday arvo at the moment.....There are to be very heavy showers/rain in the south and east - extending across to the SW....although the western extent has been uncertain. Looks like we might catch the edge of the rain band.

HI - road shoes will be ok...there might be a few muddy bits - all depends on whether there is anymore rain between now and Saturday. As with most of the country the ground has been baked hard over the last few weeks, so will not have been churned up. In this heat things dry out pretty quickly. Looking at the forecast below, it would seem that it unlikely for things to change dramatically over the next few days.

Weather Forecast for Cheltenham

The terrain is as follows:

Playing field
Dirt tracks (could be muddy - suspect not)
Grassy cambered field
Rocky uphill slope
Tracks through woods
Solid footpaths along escarpment top - some rocky bits
More tracks through woods
Farm tracks - hardpacked stone

Then back onto the grassy cambered field.

Hope that all helps.

For those familiar with the race, this year we are running in the reverse direction
