New Years Day 10k Update

We are continuing to plan for the New Years Day 10k on Tuesday. The river level is high but the towpath, rowing club and car parks are clear and accessible. In the event that there is a sudden rise in river level to the extent that we need to cancel the race we will put out an alert on the website.

For those travelling to the Hereford Rowing Club for the first time it is easy to find us off the main A49. If you are travelling Northbound turn left at traffic lights after crossing river on Greyfriars bridge then first left into Greyfriars Avenue. Southbound turn right at traffic lights as you approach Greyfriars bridge and then first left into Greyfriars Avenue. There will be race signs to direct you accordingly.

This year we will be unable to park vehicles on the field next to the Rowing Club , the ground is saturated. We are planning to park visitors in the Rowing Club car park and the public car park in Greyfriars Avenue which is in close proximity to the Rowing Club. Please allow extra time for parking and walking to and from your vehicle to the Rowing Club.

The riverside towpath to the race start is quite muddy so it's best if family and friends come prepared wearing suitable footwear.

We will accept entries on the day and have already received a record number of race pre-entries so looks like there will be a very strong turn-out.

Wye Valley Runners wish to thank you all for continuing to support this event and look forward to seeing you all on race day.
