Barrow Boxing Day Handicap 2018
Wednesday 26 December 2018, 10:30am
About the race
The popular post Christmas pick-me-up is back for its 36th year - the perfect way to clear away the effects of Xmas excess.
The course is along the gently undulating country roads around Barrow upon Soar, largely based on the Barrow 6 race route.
Runners estimate their time when they enter and start at minute intervals, with the slowest first, so that in theory everyone finishes at the same time.
Fancy dress encouraged (but don't forget it might be cold, you do have to be able to run in it and there is a noon cut off for the race finish).
There are no medals, but you get a memento and a mince pie.
Entries open at 7pm Sunday 14th October on the EventEntry website.
This is a popular event and sells out quickly each year.
- No on the day entries
- No deferrals or refunds
- Transfers allowed until 16th December so that we can get the handicaps sorted out
Race day info
The race starts and finishes at:
Humphrey Perkins School
Barrow upon Soar
There is parking at the school, but please car share to minimise congestion.
Please do not park on local roads and note that the car park closes at 10.15am and will not open until the race has finished (as access is across the start / finish area).
Registration will be open from 09.20, where you will receive your number and race memento. No numbers have been sent in the post.
You will be told your start time (based on the predicted time you gave us). The first runners will set off at 10.30am.
All runners should finish at approximately 11.40, where there will be water and a mince pie waiting for you.
We also have refreshments including hot drinks to purchase.
Although it's a light-hearted race it is for runners only, and for safety reasons no buggies or dogs allowed.
The 2018 route will remain the same as the last few years, starting and finishing at Humphrey Perkins School in Barrow upon Soar and run mostly on country roads.
There are toilets and changing facilities at the start / finish.
Fancy dress is certainly encouraged.
