Derby Runner League – Carsington Water
July 5, 2022 @ 7:15 pm – 8:00 pm
Hi all, just a reminder that the forth summer Derby Runner League race will be Tuesday 5th July 7:30pm start. Location – Carsington Water, DE6 3JL.
No requirement to sign up, club top must be worn.
The route will be an out and back. Commencing on the dam wall to allow the pack to spread out before entering the narrower sections of the trail, the run will proceed anti-clockwise around Carsington water to a turnaround point. The return stretch being the shorter leg, finishing just shy of the Millfields car park. Total distance approx 4.5 miles.
The trail is well maintained comprising compacted stone/shingle. It tends to drain reasonably well but in the event of recent rain there could be odd puddles to negotiate. There is a very short section of tarmac lane where runners should note residents have vehicle access, however marshals will be present.
The race start line is approx a 5-minute jog/10-minute walk from Millfields car park. Start time 7:30 p.m.
Toilets will be available in the Millfields car park.
A water station will be available at the finish.
Important to note, Severn Trent has introduced an automatic number plate recognition system to all 3 car parks at Carsington, and *parking charges will be applicable* – which also adds to the reasons why car sharing a good idea whenever possible! Race HQ will be adjacent to the Millfields Car park area (Postcode DE6 3JL.)
People using the car park can pay online up to 24-hours afterwards.
