This race is part of the Oxon AA Grand Prix Series

Location information

Charlton United Football Club, High Street, Charlton-on-Otmoor, OX5 2UL

Car parking

Parking is in the field adjacent to the venue. The entrance is to the left of the clubhouse driveway. Please car-share if possible to reduce congestion and help the planet. Due to the recent wet weather, the entrance to the field will be muddy. Fewer cars will help keep it passable.

There will be no entry to the car park after 18:45 in order to permit runners to assemble off the road prior to the start (unless the start is delayed due to traffic issues on the A34).  Out of courtesy to local residents, please do not park on the roads in the village.

Special arrangments

We anticipate holding a single race for men and women starting at 19:00.

To accommodate those who wish to run and to keep within the course capacity agreed with our County Officials, this race may require us to separate men and women; this will also be the case if the course is deemed unsafe for the full number on the night due to inclement conditions. In such circumstances, the women’s race will start at 19:05

If there are traffic issues on the A34 the race start may be delayed, but we have very limited flexibility to ensure completion of the race in daylight, especially in poor weather.

Number collection

Please arrive as early as possible to collect your number. Numbers will be available for collection in the upstairs bar area from shortly before 18:00

Changing & toilets

Two changing rooms with showers are available on the ground floor of the HQ. By request of the venue please do not use the bar area or kit bags upstairs to change as there is limited space. Toilets are available in the clubhouse, plus portaloos outside.

Baggage

There is not a dedicated baggage store. We recommend leaving any bags in the changing rooms or outside at the front of the venue. If you have anything valuable, please speak to the Entries Desk who may be able to look after it for you. We have been asked by the venue not to leave bags in the upstairs bar area.  

Race Start

At 18:45, please start moving to the car-park where runners will assemble in race order prior to the start. Marshals will guide the runners onto the road when it is safe to do so. Please only approach the start from the car-park, do not move in from the road direction.

Race Rules

Please re-read the Race Rules and remember headphones are not permitted.

Water

Water is provided at the end of the race. Please bring your own bottle to help reduce the impact on the environment.
