Race Details

The final race in the series will be a mass start “billygoat” race starting at 19:30 for all competitors, with registration from 18:30 to 19:15. This is mostly because it won’t be dark before 19:15, but it will also add a bit of additional competition!

The entry fee is £2 for SLOW members, students and juniors; £3 for others. The race will use SI electronic punching with SI cards available to hire on the night. Headlamps are also available for hire if you e-mail the organizer in advance to reserve one.
