Race HQ - Galtres Centre, Market Place Easingwold. 

Parking - In front and rear of Galtres Centre or on the Market square. Additional parking at the heath centre to the rear of the Galtres. 

Toilets -  The Town Council have agree to keep the toilets in the Market Square open beyond their normal 6 pm closing so will be available this year. There are also toilets in the Galtres Centre. There are NO toilets at/near the start.  

The Start - Top of footpath in Millfield Park, as used last year. This is a little closer than before but still a 15 minute brisk walk from the Market Place/Galtres Centre. You should have left this area by 7.10 at the latest if you want to make the start! Route to the start - see Town Plan (note: start on map is the old Copperclay one - now at the top of the footpath in park before Copperclay. Do not go via Oulston road as it is much further)  

Finish - In the Memorial Park next to the Galtres Centre.  

After - The bar at the Galtres will be open. Sweaty runners welcome! 

Route - See Road Race League website for the route. Keep to the left for the first 2.5 KM. Cross to right by arrow as instructed by marshal - do not cross before. Return to left after Binsley lane and continue to 4 KM. Cross to the right before the short steep climb to Crayke (cross at arrow/marshal). Stay to the right up and over Crayke and all the way down the hill to the right turn into the narrow Daffy lane at 5.5 KM; drinks ahead. Beware of the uneven surface and a few potholes on Daffy Lane. Return to the left side of the road on rejoining the Crayke - Easingwold Road at 7.5 KM and stay on the left to finish. Keep a bit of energy to look good for the run throught the Market Place! The finish is just round the corner in the park. Water at finish and bar open in Galtres Centre near the finish.
