Hey Muddy Runners,
Thanks for signing up for the Newham Grange Farm 5km Trail Race! We've got some important info for you, so give this a quick read. Any questions, just shoot an email to Gary, our Race Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where It's Happening: Newham Grange Farm, Wykeham Way, Coulby Newham, Middlesbrough, TS8 0TG
Check-in Time: Pop by the farm between 17:30 and 18:20 to grab your race number. We'll have signs up to point you in the right direction. Been to one of our ‘summer series’ races before? Bring along your 'summer series' race number.
Parking Info: We've got free parking at the farm, but it fills up quick. If you can't find a spot, there's street parking nearby—just don't block anyone's drive, yeah?
Facilities: Toilets? Sorted. They're by the registration area. Keep your personal stuff in your car boot though; we can't look after it for you.
The Route: Expect a bit of everything—trails, tarmac, you name it. The race starts and finishes at the farm and takes you through some scenic spots. Regular running shoes should do the trick, but it can get a little wet and puddly in places when in wet conditions.
Need Help?: We'll have marshals and tail runners around to lend a hand. If you run into any snags, find the nearest marshal.
Start & Finish: Once you've got your race number, head over to the start line just outside the farm. You'll see the finish line once you're back inside the farm area.
Fancy Being a Marshal?: We could still use a few more marshals. Know someone who's up for it, and family or friends? Have them email us at email@example.com. We're giving out £10 for expenses.
First Aid: Two first aiders will be on deck if you need any medical attention. Just flag down a marshal.
COVID-19 Heads-up: Feeling a bit under the weather? Got a cough or high temp? Better sit this one out for everyone's sake.
Results & Prizes: Check our website or Facebook page for the race results. And hey, we've got prizes for the top three male and female winners! Plus we will be giving out the summer series prizes!
Any More Questions?: Call Gary on 07769 705478 or drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We're super excited to see you all! Let's keep it fun and safe.
