Where is it

The route is 5ish miles around Crowthorne Woods which is the bit of Woodland to the North East of Crowthorne, between the Crowthorne bypass and the B3348 and the A3095 (you know the bit that was on fire a couple of years ago).

Do I need to know anything new this year?

At FinchCoasters we are very sensitive to our feathered friends so we would like to make sure that any spectators stay out of the undergrowth and on the main tracks and also keep their furry four legged canine friends on a lead so we don’t disturb the lovely twittering birds from nesting.

Can I Strava it

If you are someone who likes to Strava then we are the race for you.  We will have a groovy little Strava group set up in time for it with some rather cheeky Strava segments especially for the day so we can really see who cranks it up a notch when they might get a QOM or a KOM.  If you don’t know what these are then Strava has passed you by.

Do you have a Route Map available so I can see what I am letting myself in for?

Of Course, please see the map below.  If you click on the Mapmyrun logo at the top it will open up in a bigger window.

Is there parking available?

Yes, we have organised for parking to be available in the carpark on the perimeter road around Broadmoor (see map below for the location.  Access will be fully signposted but if your internal satnav is on the blink and you need a hand from Mr Garmin or Mr TomTom then RG45 7BY should get you close enough but please keep an eye out for signposts pointing the way as well.

Rock up on the day and pay your fees

There will also be spot prizes of 4 RunFace t-shirts and 3 x 30 minute Sports Massages courtesy of Modus Physiotherapy and Roger Duckworth Physiotherapy at each race. We’ll randomly select some numbers, and if you finish in one of those positions you’ll win one of these fantastic prizes!

Will there be a goody-bag?

Absolutely!

Will I be offered a free homemade cake at the end?

Oh yes indeed!

Do I need to know anything else?

No, except you may want to bring some insect repellent as we cannot seem to get rid of the little critters no matter what we try and do.

Will it be sunny?

Well we cannot guarantee this but it does seem to be dry most times when we run it, so here is hoping!
