All the key info needed for the day.
How to get to Frieth
From Marlow / M40 / Lane End directions: As you come into the village drive up past Race HQ (school) and up to a clearly marked right turn. From Henley/Hambleden/Skirmett directions, you'll come into Frieth around a sharp right-hand bend take the first left and the car park is straight in front of you; it will be clearly identifiable. It is in a field and there is plenty of room and we will have a few volunteers present; please do however park considerably. The address is Frieth, Henley-on-Thames, Oxon RG9 6PJ. Please note that there is no on-road parking in the village, as this affects the running route
The car park will open at 8.30am. The end of the race passes the car park entrance so there will be no access to/from the car park between 9.15am and 10.45am. Bicycles can be left immediately inside the wooden fence around the front of Race HQ. Race HQ is less than a five-minute walk from the car park.
Please arrive before 9.20am at the latest even if you’ve pre-registered, it allows us to get everyone in place to be able to set you off at 10am. All race numbers will be waiting for you at Race HQ (Frieth Village Hall). Please fill in the details on the back of your race number and then pin (we have these at Race HQ) the number to the front of your running vest. Please then make your way around to the school playing field where you can get refreshments and use the toilets. The mandatory race brief will be given here. There is also the option to leave bags in the school hall, but please be aware that we take no responsibility for personal possessions.
The Warm Up
Immortal Fitness will be getting runners and spectators in the mood with a pre-race warm up.
We operate the run under Association of Running clubs rules. For safety reasons you are not allowed to wear headphones/ear pieces. Whilst the vast majority of the run is off road there are a few sections where you will use roads; these are shared with traffic. Whilst it is usually quiet this time of day please be aware. The course itself is undulating and when running through the woods please be careful of your footing as there are tree routes etc. We have fully licensed private medical team based at Race HQ in the event of an injury. The run finishes on a slight incline, so make sure you keep something in the tank and please smile when you cross the finish line; there is a photographer!
Once you cross the finish line we will record your race number (please make it visible at all times), your finishing position and your time. We will then get the results on our website within 48hrs. After the finish line you can collect your well-earned medal.
