Information from RD Rachael (28/4)
Thank you for entering Rainow 5 Fell Race on Wednesday 4th May 2022.
We have a record number of entries — PLEASE can everyone CAR SHARE to the event. Parking marshals will be available to direct you to parking – we use the Rainow Primary School playground Post-code (school) SK10 5UB. Once full, marshals will direct you to park on roads in the village – please park safety and courteously not blocking any driveways. Please do not park in the Robin Hood pub car park. Consider parking in Bollington and jog over as warm up!
Please collect your race number from registration in the Rainow Village Institute (opposite Robin Hood pub) from 6pm onwards. Bags can be left here (no valuables to be left). Bring your own safety pins please. All runners must display their race number. The race starts at 7:30pm very close to the Institute building.
The race is run under FRA regulations – as such be prepared to have FRA kit – a recommended minimum for this race is a waterproof top. The race route map and GPX file is available on the race website: https://macclesfield-harriers.co.uk/rainow5. It is your responsibility to know the route (its on footpaths) – there will be marshals on each junction. Note the race is 5 miles (not 5K!). After collecting your number, if you do not start or do not complete the race it is essential you let a marshal or therace registration team know. There will be a “sweeper” at the back of the runners. The route does include kissing gates – if you are fast make sure you start at the front – otherwise be prepared to make the most of a breather at the gates if necessary!
After the race tea/coffees and cakes will be available to buy – please bring exact cash £2-£3 depending on your thirst and hunger and if possible bring your own mug to be filled(refreshment profits all fund-raising for Rainow Pre-School).
Low-key prize giving (with thanks to Red Willow brewery for prizes) will take place at 8:45pm in the institute, along with presentation of donations from your entry fees to Cheshire Wildlife Trust and Buxton Mountain Rescue.
I look forward to seeing you all & enjoy the race.
PS. Car share!
