The FAQ section has been created to answer the more commonly asked questions by customers. If your question is not listed below, please contact the organiser using the contact details on the event page.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Is this race for me?

A. A challenging course, this approximately 10km race is a two lap route, run mainly through woodland, along farm tracks and over fields. There are both steep climbs and descents within the race. You will be rewarded with stunning views! The 5k Up the Odda Duo is one lap each of the same challenging course.

Q. Can I run the route before race day?

A. The route is run mainly on public footpaths. There are some sections however, that leave the public footpaths and cross private farmland. This is allowed with kind permission of the landowners on race day only. Please do not jeopardise the future of the race by running these sections before the race. You will find the Garmin routes on the Facebook page.

Q. Is there somewhere safe to leave my belongings?

A. There will be a baggage storage area within the school. Items left are done so at your own risk.

Q. Where shall I park?

A. Parking is very limited within the village. There will be marshals on hand to direct you to suitable spaces at the edge of the village. Where possible please car share.
