Yes – port-a-loos will be located on the sports field. No urinating in public allowed under any circumstances.
Can I wear headphones during the event?
No, From 1 April 2016 a new rule regarding the wearing of head phones in road races was introduced into the 2016-2018 edition of the UKA Rules of Competition:
"The wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic”Enforcement of this rule is a matter for the race director and referee and disqualification of runners who choose to ignore it is an option.
Is there parking at the start/finish area?
This year parking will be at Reading Rugby Club on Sonning Lane.
We ask that users make a small donation (£2) to the club for parking, using the collection tins available on the day.
Please do not park on Sonning Lane these are part of the course and parking here will impact the event and the flow of traffic through the village.
PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN NEARBY RESIDENTIAL ROADS.
