The Course
The route is two laps of the park along a mainly flat course, although there is a sharp uphill and downhill section at the start of each lap The route should be quiet with little vehicle traffic, although there are no road closures in place, so runners should be alert to other park users.

First Aid
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for. 
‚ÄčPoints scored in each race count towards overall Series prizes, with the best three races to count towards the final series results.

Your individual time and position will be recorded by manual timekeepers. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre, but please allow time for manual processing. Results will be uploaded to 
www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

"Can I just say what a friendly series this was? Very well organised with brilliant marshalls and recognition for the older runners. I only discovered you this year with the Carsington 10k and I hope the summer Series grows. Thank you.
