Please print off the race route map for your course and it is mandatory you carry a copy for the race you are are running in on the day. The route will be marked and marshalled but we cannot guarantee that the markers won’t be removed by passers by etc.

If you prefer copy the route onto an OS map and you can carry this instead of the race route map.

To keep maps/route descriptions dry it is worth carrying them in a freezer bag or laminating them.

All Hardmoors 26.2 series races will be taped and signed to help with navigation but in some situations signage and tape can go missing on the day of the event (whether it be accidental or deliberate). So competitors will find on the website, a downloadable race route description and downloadable maps of the course which are to be used if tape and signs are not apparent. It is the competitors responsibility to navigate themselves throughout the course.
