Both the men’s race and the Ladies race are the same as last year depending on any forestry work.
The ladies race will start @ 10:45 from the forestry car park (approximately 4.25 miles).
The men’s race will start @ 11:00 from the forestry car park (approximately 7.25 miles).
Both routes have a good mix of forestry, tracks, climbs, descents, mud and water features.
Shower facilities are available at the leisure Centre (clean shoes please) but they may charge for this.
The post-race refreshments & presentation will be held at the Royal British Legion Club (clean shoes & clothing please) from 12:30pm, there is plenty of parking available in the car park (£1.30 up to 2 hours) and on the street (free).
Post code: LD8 2YT, will get you to the Leisure Centre and more detail of the courses and the location of the Royal British Legion Club can be found by clicking the link on the ‘Presteigne XC’ event on the calendar found on the Presteigne Pacers website.
As the forestry is open to the public we kindly request runners ‘car share’ as much as possible and don’t park in the forestry car park (If the NRW who maintain the forestry get too many complaints regarding the race, we may not be able to hold the race in the future) there is plenty of space for parking on the approach road and by the leisure Centre. Car share from Rowing Club at 9.AM as usual
