Sat Nav Users

The post code for the Red Lion is HP14 4HF which is probably the nearest property to the
parking area.


Car parking is in the field by kind permission of the local farmer. There will be a nominal
charge of £1 which is given to the farmer.

Start / Finish

From the car park the finish can be found to the other side of the hedge together with toilets
should you need it. Any kit can be left at the finish area. The start is about 400m further up
the access road and is about a 10 minute walk, so please ensure you leave enough time to get
to the start.

Race Administration

We will be using race numbers and therefore you will need to collect these from the car park /
finish area for your club before the start. Please ensure that each of your runners is issued

Most Improved Runner Vote

It's that time of year again to get your thinking caps on and nominate your Most Improved Runner for 2016.

For those of your whom are new to the club (and indeed for anyone who needs to be reminded) each year we have a nomination and voting process for our members to chose who they think is the most improved runner over the previous 12 months.

Nominations are now open and will remain open until Friday 9th December each club member can nominate one male and one female member who they think has improved the most over the past 12 months with the club.

Then at our annual mince pie evening on Wednesday 14th December (where we will also do the draw for the Club places for VMLM) the three men and the three ladies with the most nominations will be put forward for those members present to VOTE for the most improved runner.

For the avoidance of doubt, you need to have been a member of the club for 12 months or more as of December 1st 2016 to qualify for the most improved runner vote.

So to nominate your runners for the vote email one male and one female name to hello@bracknell-forest-runners.org.uk.
