IMPORTANT:
As a condition of gaining permission for the race to go ahead Natural England and the organiser require that you arrive with clean, dry footwear and outer clothing, be prepared to run through a disinfectant footbath and to do the same before leaving the site. It is also important that no litter is left on site including drinking vessels, etc., which may be harmful to wildlife.

Please comply with this as future permissions are entirely dependant on this and there will be observers there to monitor that we do comply.

31st CANNOCK CHASE TRIG POINT RACE

We are pleased to be able to confirm that access agreement has been given and the race will again take place. It will be held on SUNDAY 14th January 2017 with all of the usual facilities and arrangements. Essentially these are:

Registration and race HQ - Milford Hall Cricket Club, Main Road Milford, nr. Stafford, ST17 0UL

Registration from 0930-10.30, with race briefing at start for all at 10.50

Entry – On the day only - £12 to cover (increased) access fees, SI timing, free refreshments (soup and cakes), use of clubhouse and showers.

Race limit - 160 runners

Mandatory kit - This is a race run in the middle of winter when weather conditions can and have been unpredictable and changeable. It is a tough and strenuous challenge not to be undertaken unless you are absolutely sure you can finish in a little over 3 hours. SO FULL FRA KIT requirements will be applied and implemented. This means that full body cover waterproof and windproof must be worn or carried. Hat, gloves, whistle and a map are also mandatory. Specially drawn quality race maps will be available to purchase at the clubhouse. FOLLOWING AN UNPLEASANT INCIDENT LAST YEAR THERE WILL BE FULL CHECKS AND “NO KIT NO GO” WILL BE ENFORCED.

Course - The start and finish are both a 7-8 minute walk from the cricket club.

*There is a 2 minute (maximum) timed out section at both the outward and return road crossing at Moors Gorse recorded through SI timing. Great care is needed when crossing this busy main road. A taped route must be followed on the exit from Brereton Spurs to avoid mountain bike areas. Alternatively you can retrace your route back along the minor road to a suitable point to continue navigating to Moors Gorse.

There will be a compulsory withdraw point at the outward refreshments point of Moors Gorse for anyone who arrives there later than 65 minutes after the race start
