rossonwye4acorns is affiliated to ENGLAND ATHLETICS reg : 2663038
FUN RUN registration is on the day only, at least half an hour before the start.
The whole of the 10k & 5K course is off-road but over mixed terrain, and depending on the weather it could be rutted or boggy. Your attention is drawn to a small brook which empties into the River Wye at the first water station and to cross it entails going down and up steps, which may be slippery. At Backney Bridge the ground is very stony. There are two water stations on the route.The Run starts and ends at the field behind the Rowing Club. The Fun Run course is totally within the Rowing Club field and has the same start and finish lines as the 10K & 5k.
