Directions and Parking
There are several car parks around Carsington Water. Race registration/HQ, the start and the finish will all be at Millfields Car Park (post code DE6 3JL). There are toilets available at Millfields Car Park but unfortunately no shower or changing facilities are available.
Owing to the rural setting there is limited public transport to the race venue so it is advisable to arrive by car. There is ample parking at Millfields Car Park. Parking details are available at; Parking At Carsington | Carsington Water | Come visit us | Experience water | Wonderful on Tap | Severn Trent Water (stwater.co.uk)
Those attending the evening meal and awards presentation should note that Pride Park Stadium is 15 miles from Carsington so suitable travel arrangements should be made. There is ample free parking at the stadium (overnight if required).
Both the ladies’ and the men’s races will begin at 1pm. The event will be chip timed (www.chiptiming.co.uk). Race registration will be open from 10:30am at Millfields Car Park Race HQ.
The route is largely traffic-free, apart from for a short (2km) section of road at the start. The main path around the reservoir is all hard surface, suitable for cyclists, pedestrians and buggies.
The route can be described as ‘undulating’. We will not have exclusive access to the path on race day so please give due consideration to other site users.
Runners will leave Millfields Car Park via the main gates, turning left onto the road for 1km. After 1km runners will turn left onto Gibfield Lane and then fork left onto Broom Lane. At the top of Broom Lane runners will turn left onto Hays Lane and descend down to the main path around the reservoir. Runners will then embark on a full, single, clockwise lap of the reservoir, finishing at Millfields Car Park.
The route will be well-marked with signage and police tape and marshalled, although it is virtually impossible to get lost or take a wrong turn as long as you keep the water to your right. There will also be an outrider cycling ahead of the lead runners and two sweep riders behind the last runners.
There will be one water station on the course at halfway (Sheepwash Car Park) and at least one race photographer.
