Ulley Res Information 2022 

Results of Ulley Res 2022
5 miles approx mixed terrain

The condition of the course: good underfoot on the whole but I will be giving attention to the discretionay paths.
(As often in the past) the field crops are rapeseed. Recent rain has made it overhang to some extent.
I will be folding it back into its field before the race to ensure a field-side path.
The initial path after Stoket Lane turn is long grass: again, it will receive attention
It will be re-examined over the next week

Note there is now no access to car parking at the reservoir bridge

There are rape crops in the fields and it is likely they will not be cropped by 15/6. However, the perimeter paths are reasonably runnable.

Our benefactors at Whiston Parish Church CC have upgraded changing accommodation available

There will be no junior 'fun run'


The traditional start has been risk-assessed and is safe to use, but we plan to use the variation shown on this Course and Marshalling map, which is vehicle-free and traffic-free




For greater convenience for all,we will probably adjust the start this year to be at the pavilion with a course passing the cricket area towards Royd's Moor, turning right on to public right of way to access Doles Lane part-way up the hill.
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.
Note: there is no short rce or fun run this year.

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