WYWL Event 3 - Craven Energy Cross Country - 25th January 2015

Venue – University Academy Keighley (UAK), Greenhead Road, Keighley, West Yorkshire, BD20 6EB
Race Start Time – 10.00am

Registration will be inside the school, where there are toilets, showers and changing rooms. Tea and coffee will be on sale.
New tags will be given out at registration (old tags can be handed back if you still have them).
Please arrive is good time to avoid queuing. Plan to have 3 - 4 people manning the registration process.

WYWL Course – The course is 4.7 miles, and is within the confines of Cliffe Castle Park, which is next to the school. The course starts and finishes within the park and it takes less than 5 minutes to walk to the start from the school car park.

The course covers all terrains so trail shoes are advisable. Unfortunately it isn’t suitable for spikes, as there is a small section of hardcore as you enter the woods and a few tarmac paths to cross within the park.
The course is one lap of the start field, three laps of parkland/woodland trail and then a final lap of the start field to finish. It is a challenging, but very “runnable” course – some flat fields and some hills. Underfoot is grass (rather boggy due to recent weather) and woodland track. There are no real obstacles other than mud, tree roots, the odd rabbit hole and a few tarmac paths to cross (which can be slippery if it is icy). The course will be well-marshalled in addition to being marked-out with red/white tape. There will be two qualified first-aiders on site and drinking water available at the finish.

Parking – there is a large car park at UAK school and we will have car-parking marshals on hand. If the car park fills, there is parking additional parking on Greenhead Road and other side streets nearby. Please be careful not to block driveways or cause any obstruction should you need to park on the street.
Facilities – toilets, showers, changing rooms, pre and post-race refreshments will be available at the school. There will be hot food, cakes and hot drinks available after the race.

We will also be holding a raffle after the race, so please bring a prize donation from your team.

We will do our best to get the results out within an hour of the last finisher, so please be patient, relax and enjoy a well-earned drink and something to eat.
