Latest Information: First CC6 of the year!!!

WADAC, Running Sisters and Southampton AC invite you to Race 5 of the CC6 race series at Badger Farm this Sunday 5th January, 9:30am start.  We will be starting a little further from our traditional start so please allow an extra 5 minutes from the car park to the start this time!

Directions: The race HQ and meeting area is on Whiteshute ridge at the orientation table (OS Grid Ref: SU465275), park at the Badger Farm Sainsburys (off Badger Farm Road), use the far end of the car park by the Community Centre and Friarsgate Surgery. We have notified the supermarket so you can park until 11am. Between the Community Centre and the rear of the supermarket are steps down, follow them which turns into a muddy trail (now with handrails) up onto the ridge (5 minute walk). You will notice the ridge has been enclosed as there are cattle on the grassland. This will mean we will be starting half way down the ridge, so the race Marshalls will escort you down at 9.25am from the HQ.  The facilities at the Community Centre and Sainsburys/Starbucks are for patrons only.

Course: The course is just under 5 miles long and undulating. There is a mixture of grass, mud, chalk, gravel and very limited tarmac. We recommend trail shoes. The course starts half way down the ridge this year and you will be running upwards (away from Winchester), the route takes you over the Badger Farm Road footbridge and then down a long descent along Compton Down  followed by an ascent onto Hurdle Way (a gravel path) back towards the grassland meadows behind Olivers Battery then via some narrow paths and eventually back onto Whiteshute Ridge, were you get a chance to return up the way you came at the start of the course and finish above Sainsburys. The course includes several narrow (but open) gates on Whiteshute Ridge and later on 2 kissing gates at the top of a short (but steep) wooded hill at the Compton Down end of the course. Expect the usual hazards of roots, uneven trails and especially low hanging branches.

Cows: We will be starting in an enclosed area which may have cattle on the day. We have modified the race this year to ensure runners avoid the cows at the start (when you will be in a large group), but you will pass them at the end of the race. The White British Cattle are friendly enough but be mindful of them. Our marshals will be at all the gates onto and off the enclosed fields, their job will be to make sure you are safe AND ensure the cows don’t try to leave their field.

Be aware that there may well be other members of the public using the area, dog walkers and horse riders etc. please show them courtesy.

Finally, while we will be supplying water at the end of the race, in order to reduce our environmental impact, we would encourage you to bring your own drink or reusable cup to the race.

Happy New Year!

Winchester & District, Running Sisters & Southampton AC

CC6 Manor Farm race details

Stubbington Green Runners and Netley Abbey Runners will be hosting CC6 #2 at Manor Farm Country Park on Sunday 13thOctober @ 09:30. Manor Farm is located just off Junction 8 of the M27 and signposted from the Motorway. The nearest postcode is SO31 1BH.

Route and Safety:

The route is approximately 4.3 miles long with a couple of hills. With the recent rain, the route is muddy in many places, so trail shoes are recommended. Please take care when running downhill especially. There will be a couple of quiet roads to cross which are marshalled, but there will be very few, if any, cars. There are also a couple of gates to negotiate. Any exposed tree roots and stumps will be marked where possible.

Parking: 

As ever, we expect parking to be tight, so please car share as much as possible. There will be no parking charges on the day, so there is no need to buy a parking ticket. Please do not park on the access road outside the Country Park entrance. Follow the road towards the Barnfield Car Park and Marshalls will direct you. Please follow the instructions of the Car Park marshals and be aware of traffic while walking along the road to the start area.

General Notes:

  • The start is 09:30 prompt.  Please allow time to arrive, park and get to the start.
  • We do not have exclusive access to the Country Park, which is popular with dog walkers, cyclists, and other users, so please be considerate to the local residents.
  • The Ladies and Gents toilets in Barnfield will be unlocked for the race.
  • The Start and Finish will be at the same point level with the hut in Barnfield.
  • The route is a mixture of grass, gravel paths, but mainly trails and bridleways, through fields and copses and along the river. Tree roots, ruts, large stones, low branches, posts, steps, gates, bridges and a couple of lovely hills (first at Mile 1 and a final one near the finish) will require you to watch your step around the course – please pay attention and listen to marshalls who will be at all important marking and warning points.
  • There will be water available at the end of the race however, in an effort to reduce our environmental impact, it has been decided not to provide cups so please bring your drink or reusable cup.

Our members are also providing cakes and treats so please help yourself post-race.

Please also take any litter home to keep the park clean.

 

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Fleming Park race report and photo link

A glorious sunny morning greeted us for the first of the CC6 series at Fleming Park, as did an abundance of marshals and helpers from Eastleigh Running Club, Hedge End Running Club and Itchen Spitfires for which we are most grateful.

114 ladies and 127 men finished the 4.2 mile route around the park, the numbers being up on last year and the last runner crossed the finishing line within an hour.  Thank you all for running and we hope you enjoyed it.

There is nothing quite like a good slice of home baked cake after a race so a huge thank you also to the wonderful cake bakers.

We have a lady’s vest which was left at the gazebo which will be brought along to the next event if someone would like to claim it please.

Dave Nowik was there to capture the morning and his photos can be seen using the link below.
