With the new CC6 season almost upon us, we are pleased to share with you details for this Sunday’s race, which is hosted by Itchen Spitfires Running Club, with Eastleigh and Hedge End.
The location of the race is as the same as previous seasons on the old golf course, at Fleming Park in Eastleigh. The nearest post code for the event is SO50 9LH which is for the adjacent Pavilion.
The course itself is approximately 4 miles, consisting of 3 laps of the attached route. The route is predominantly on grass (we have to keep the paths clear for park users), with elements of gravel track, so you can expect the usual array of mud and undulations underfoot. The course route, license and risk assessment are attached for your information.
The race will start at 9.30am PROMPT, so please arrive in good time for this.
There is on street parking nearby, or at the local leisure centre, but we request that you car share, so as to keep the additional traffic in the area to a minimum. We also kindly request that runners DO NOT park in the adjacent Pavilion On The Park, so as to keep the neighbours onside. Please respect this request – there will be marshals in the car park just in case….!
The park will be open to other park users, so please be considerate to them and watch out for dog walkers especially.
There are no changing facilities at the location, but there are limited toilet facilities EXTERNAL to the Pavilion which runners can use. Runners are not however permitted to use the INTERNAL toilets.
Water and cake will be available after the event and there is also a café at the Pavilion, should you need a coffee and / or bacon sandwich.
Best of luck for the season and happy running.
