fraser and geddes

IMPORTANT UPDATE

Health and Safety Brief – The course has been set and is in great condition however due to significantly low temperatures there are areas of the course that are rutted and icy with small pockets of frozen mole hills in the fields.  I will be out early on Saturday morning to break up and salt any areas of ice on the main path between Point E and F and around Point B. Runners should be aware of the potential slippy conditions, particularly around Point B and between Points E and F and should run on the grass verge and avoid the middle of the path at these points. Conditions are likely to improve in the morning but some ice may still be present. This is obviously particularly important to junior runners. Anyone walking the course can assist by removing any hazardous branches, mole hills or debris from the course.

Toilets – Due to renovation work, The Dores Inn is closed and therefore the only Toilets are at the Race HQ at the Dores Parish Hall.

Roadworks – There are 2 sets of roadworks, 1 at Tesco Dores Road and one set at the Ness Side Lodge on the main road. Please allow and extra 10-15 minutes on your journey.

Parking – Conditions may be icy so take care. Parking is at The Parish Church opposite the start/finish, at The Dores Inn and around the village. Please park responsibly and respect the local residents. Officials, Marshalls and helpers can park in the field at the start/finish area. There is no parking at the Race HQ at the Parish Hall.
