Knightshayes Loop Race & Picnic

Sunday 11th June

Local parkland event around the Knightshayes Park National Trust property comprising loop race and a summer picnic.
Join us for some friendly competition over a Short, Medium or Long Loop race and stay after for a picnic. Bring your own food to eat and, if you can, bring some cake to share while you socialise after your run. The NT café and toilets are situated close to the start/finish area. Please come along in good time to cheer and encourage other runners on their courses rather than simply for your own start time.

Please enter your preferred time slot as usual. Course lengths are approximate, and subject to final controlling checks.
The idea of the loop race is that where a course is listed as having 2 loops you will run one loop, returning to a common control before heading off on a second different loop of similar length, to finish your course. By us identifying the loops as A and B, we can start 2 runners off at the same time. One person runs loop A then B, while the other runs B then A, so effectively the same course but in a different order. If you are running head to head with someone, the excitement comes at the crossover point between loops and then the run in to the finish, where we hope those enjoying their picnic will cheer everyone on!
If you wish to join the friendly competition we will try to select a competitor of similar age/ability so you race head to head, at around that time.
This will be done manually on the day so please accept some flexibility in start times to make that possible.
Devon and QO members are invited to race in this way if they wish, for an informal inter club competition.
If you prefer to simply run your own course as usual, that is fine, and there is no pressure to race head to head against others if you really don't want to.
