Online Entry System is now available- go to 'our events'- 'RHAC ONLINE ENTRY'

[14/6/16] The course is unchanged from last few years, and the fields below Stoket Lane are rape-free though yesterday scouts reported that they were in a mess, but then what wasn't yesterday evening. We can look forward to better in a few days.

[15/6/16] Surprisingly good conditions in the valley bottom, where the crops are wheat and grass. The only difficulty met was in the 10 metres or so before and after the two plank bridges where there was some surface mud. Nothing deeper.

The entire area of the reservoir section is now hard surfaced from the entry to the gorse, and the previous style has been replaced by an amply-sized kissing gate.

The course:

points I and J may be omitted depending on course conditions

The start is planned for the bottom of the cricket ground as traditional but the finish will be (as last year) at the end of Doles Lane track just before the metalled road and Rectory Drive. This is for safety reasons as the road has had increasing use over the years of the race.
You will see the finish banner on your way on to Doles Lane about 400m after the start.

A short race will be held for beginners/ under 15 year-old runners. Awards for U15, U13 runners.
This will start around 5 minutes after the main race and will be out and back, turning just short of the road crossing at Upper Whiston (labelled points FG)

The course profile below (much exaggerated!) shows clearly the two hills of the main race.
