Cross Country Race Sunday 7 January 2018
Table of Contents
On Sunday 7 January 2018, the CC6 Cross Country League is coming to Compton & Shawford.
This year, the route of their annual Badger Farm Race will include paths in our parish.
The race will start/finish just above Sainsbury’s on Whiteshute Ridge.
The runners will
- come down the hill along Restricted Byway Compton and Shawford.35;
- just before reaching Cox Croft Farm they turn right along Compton & Shawford footpath 13 which takes them up through the yew tree woods
- onto Hurdle Way which is Bridleway Compton and Shawford.6
- and then leave the parish and enter Olivers Battery.
What to expect
The organisers write:
The race normally includes around 100 to 150 competitors between 9.30 and 10.30am.
The race will be marshalled and have first aiders on site.
Competitors will be informed that they need to be mindful of other users of the public footpaths.
We plan to place some notices and hazard markers around the course a few days before hand, which will be removed by lunch time on 8 January.
Competitors will be directed to the Sainsbury carpark on the morning of the race; again all signs will be removed by the end of the day of the race.
The aim is to have a fun race and leave no trace once completed.
The CC6 Cross Country League is a friendly low-key league, organised by the running clubs of south Hampshire for their members, providing an excellent introduction to competitive racing.
