Please find listed below the details for the 3rd race in the 2016/17 Herefordshire XC League to be held on Sunday 4th December.
Many thanks to Hereford Triathlon Club for hosting this event at a new venue.
Please refer any queries re the course to firstname.lastname@example.org
The new course is a 2.2 mile loop using the footpaths and permitted routes at Rotherwas. You will start next to the historic shell store which opened a hundred years ago, run down the track and then turn right and follow the river Wye. After a mile you'll turn right and right again and follow the copse and fence which surround the munitions site. You are able to practice on the route at any point but please don't try and access the munitions site as it's full of asbestos and unexploded shells........
Parking and directions
The race will start and finish next to the cycle path at the shell store. If you live in the city please cycle or walk/jog there using the new greenway bridge which starts in Outfall Works Road off St James/Eign Hill. Follow the path over the bridge, past the statues and under the railway line. Cross the road and the HQ will be in front of you. There are secure bicycle stores and plenty of fencing where bikes can be locked.
If you are coming by car please share lifts as parking is limited. We have permission for you to park at two businesses and we are grateful for their support:
Weatherseal - Thorn Business Park - HR2 6JT
BOSS - Thorn Business Park - HR2 6JT
PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE ROADS OR BUSINESSES ELSEWHERE AS ROTHERWAS OPERATES 7 DAYS A WEEK AND YOUR VEHICLE WILL PROBABLY GET SQUASHED BY A MASSIVE TRUCK...
The start will be sign posted from the parking sites. There will be portable toilets and refreshments after the race. Due to the location we are unable to provide hot drinks.
