Water stations are located on the map.

First Aid – we are supported by St Johns Ambulance on the course.
Back at the Michelin Athletic Club …
Please ensure you return to the Michelin Athletic Club and if you can’t, please let us know by phone, we need to be able to account for all our riders on the day.
Flop down on the grass and we will revive you with sandwiches, tea and cake!
