Where do the races start and finish?

Barns Green Village Hall, Muntham Drive, Barns Green, Nr Horsham, West Sussex RH13 0PT.

 

How do I get to the venue?

Barns Green is 5 miles South-West of Horsham and 3 miles East of Billingshurst.  The nearest train stations are Horsham, Christ’s Hospital or Billingshurst.  There are no public buses on Race Day.

 

Is there parking available?

There is plenty of parking available close to the race start.  The parking is free, although we do invite you to make a voluntary charitable contribution to this year’s charity, St Catherine’s Hospice.

 

Is there a cut off time?

The Barns Green half marathon and 10k races are running races in which participants should make best efforts to complete the course within 2 hours for the 10k and 3.5 hours for the half marathon.

The event has a staggered road closure order in force so we can appropriately facilitate the roads reopening for business and resident access, and to protect all participants.  After these times the roads will be reopened and throughout the race a sweep car will collect those at the back unable to keep up with the allotted pace; 20 minutes per mile for 10k and 16 minutes per mile for half marathon.

 

Are there any road closures?

The race route has a rolling road closure order from West Sussex County Council.  Please note that the closure begins to take affect at 9.30 am and is in effect until 1.30 pm.  Entrants for the 10K will be directed to a specific car park which will enable them to leave as soon as logistically possible.

 

When will I receive my race number?

Race numbers, timing tags and race information will be sent out two weeks before the races.  If you enter on or after 13th September 2020 OR you do not have a UK postal address, you will need to collect your number from Race HQ either on Saturday 26th September between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm or on Sunday 27th September before the races.
