Welcome to the 34th year of the Through the Villages' Race. Please note that the parking of all runners' vehicles must take place down Whins Lane or near the old Police Station. This is a requirement of the Police, and is done with the express intention of ensuring a safe start and finish area. If you park down Whins Lane you will find signs directing you to the Village Hall. The Police have insisted that when you finish the race you DO NOT WARM DOWN ON THE COURSE! The parking area is no more than ten minutes walk away from the start, but as with all races ARRIVE EARLY. Limited changing facilities are available at the Hall etc. All runners are cordially invited back to the Hall for FREE food and drinks provided by Villagers, at no cost to the runners.

NB. A runner MAY only run for a SENIOR OPEN TEAM or  A VETERAN TEAM but not both! Veterans please let me know beforehand. More importantly - if you cross the road from left to right on the A674 or Bury Lane without authority from the Police or marshals YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

And the most important instruction of all - Have a good run, enjoy yourselves, come back again - the Villages' Race always has a few surprises in store for you.

See you on Sunday 5 November 2017 - prompt start at 10.30 am.

DO NOT WARM DOWN ON THE COURSE – YOU WILL BE LIABLE TO DISQUALIFICATION! Police request
