Wiltshire Police are pleased to be hosting the 2019 10 mile road race event. The race will be held within the grounds of MOD Lyneham (Calne Road, Lyneham, SN15 4XX), the course is flat and traffic free (unfortunately the only thing we cant guarantee is the weather), the course should make for some very fast times and some PB opportunities.
The event will start at 13:00. With registration open from 11:00.
Entry fee for the race is £15 per person, the race is chipped timed and officially measured to UKA standards.
To promote good working relations between police and the Military, the MOD will also have a number of participants taking part in the event, it will be clearly identifiable by way of a coloured race number to be worn on the back whether the person in front is a police or military entrant.
The course is subject to change however the initial planned route is a 2 lap course as shown below. Water stations and Marshalls will be on the course.
There are toilets available and areas available for changing however showers will not be available on site.
