[p][b]Virtual “Round the Runway”[/b][/p][p]This is an unofficial virtual event. There is no entry fee and no race service is provided. You are running completely at your own risk. [/p][p]If, like me, you are disappointed not to be able to race Round The Runway this year then why not have a go at the course alone or with a few friends (subject to the current restrictions).[/p][p]Anyone can take part - you don't have to have entered the original race and donations are optional.[/p][p]You can see the course route here:[/p][p][url=https://www.strava.com/activities/1559570068]https://www.strava.com/activities/1559570068[/url][/p][p]There is a gpx file here:[/p][p][url=https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gFmBGGzgAxDuYNu3vHOPrAMnLco4FVJH/view?usp=sharing]https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gFmBGGzgAxDuYNu3vHOPrAMnLco4FVJH/view?usp=sharing[/url][/p][p][b]Rules of the Virtual “Round the Runway”[/b][/p][p]1.

If there are sufficient runners then I will conjure up some small prizes.[/p][p]The donations go directly to our charity partner Support Through Court (STC). STC support people in the Greater Manchester area who are having to face the civil courts alone and without legal aid on family matters (contact with children, domestic abuse etc.) and housing (mainly stopping evictions). Many of our clients are from deprived parts of the city. In these current times of social and economic lockdown STC’s services are required more than ever. You can learn more about the crucial work of STC here [url=https://www.supportthroughcourt.org/]https://www.supportthroughcourt.org/[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p][b]The “Round the Runway” Course[/b][/p][p]If you are running the actual course then please note additional rules:[/p][p]1. The first and last 100m or so is on a private farm track. Please [u]do not[/u] run this section. Instead start from the gate. The Strava segment [b]Virtual “Round the Runway” [/b]starts from the gate.[/p][p]2. There is no allocated parking. You will often be able to park near Mobberley railway station on Hobcroft Lane. Please park very considerately in Mobberley – we rely on the goodwill of local residents.[/p][p]3. Parts of the course are on open roads – these are not busy but please watch out for local traffic. Some of the paths are bridleways so you may encounter horses.[/p][p]4. The route isn’t perhaps as easy as you remember when there are no marshals. Please take a map and/or use the gpx file to navigate.[/p]
