Bramshott JHI Spectator Race, Sunday 10 October


Over the weekend of 9 and 10 October, SLOW is organising the Junior Home International (JHI) weekend for MW 14,16 and 18 runners from the 4 ‘nations’ of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. The individual race on Saturday will be held on the Devil’s Punchbowl (without a spectator race) and the relays on Sunday will be on Bramshott Common, with a spectator race immediately after the relays on the same area and using the same controls.

Here are the preliminary details for this spectator race.

The Assembly area is a large flat grassy field in the middle of the competition area. It can only be accessed from a small turn-off (Rectory Lane) on the northbound A3 about 1 Km north of the Liphook junction. The start and finish will be close to the Assembly area. Facilities in the Assembly area will include toilets and likely refreshments.

Note the nearest postcode is on the wrong part of Rectory Lane and should not be used for navigating the last mile – approach from the northbound A3 and follow the O-signs.

Event Details

Bramshott Common is mostly flat with a few steep slopes around the edges of the area. It is very runnable with a mixture of lightly wooded sections and open grassy areas interspersed with trees. The competition area for the longer courses extends both sides of the A3 and is connected by a tunnel. We are using a brand new map produced by Tom Edelsten using LIDAR data. Start times will be from 11.30 to 13.30; this is later than usual to allow the JHI relays to take place first. Relays will start at 9.30 and winners will finish around 11.00, so come early and watch!

The courses offered are:

Southern Navigators (SN) are holding their Club Championships on the same area using the same start but with their own separate Green course (not listed above). SN members wishing to enter their Club Championships should contact their club captain. SN members not wishing to enter their Club Championships may enter any other course via SiEntries.
