West Glam XC - Round 2 - Gnoll - hosted by Neath Harriers
The second fixture consists of a tough 2 lap, 5 mile course of the Gnoll Park.
Registration will be open on the lakeside of The Gnoll Visitor from 8:45am. All pre-registered numbers will be sorted into clubs, so to save time can only team captains collect these.
Due to the nature of the course, the men will start at 10am and the women will start at 10.05am. Surface underfoot will be a mix of grass, mud, and uneven stoney path, with many exposed tree roots and rocks.
Please note – This is a CROSS COUNTRY race on an arduous course over mixed terrain. Footwear - Trail shoes recommended or road shoes with sufficient grip, Spikes are NOT permitted.
Please ensure that the race is within your capabilities.
There is a water crossing that you will race through on each lap (you may get wet feet) and there is also one marshalled road crossing.
The course will this year travel through the newly renovated walled area of the ruins. Once again, a slightly uphill finish at the end of the second lap.
The race is limited to 470 runners. Should this sell out prior to the day - there will be NO on the day entry. We will not be holding back any day entries. Transfers are NOT permitted.
