Les Croupiers Handicap 10 mile
Date: Sunday 23rd February
Location: Pontcanna Fields
Start time: 8am
Distance: 10 miles
Organiser: Les Croupiers
Description: Club members only. In most races you all start together and the fastest return home first and the slowest last. In this race you are given a starting time based on your performances from the previous year (e.g. Someone expected to take 75 minutes starts at 8.45 a.m., a 60 minute runner at 9.00 a.m.) In theory everyone finishes at 10 o’clock. The race has a proud history, having been held since our club was formed in 1981.
This year the route has been changed such that the Start and Finish are near the riding school on the Spine Road in Pontcanna Field.
The course is entirely on paved paths but please be aware of the following:
- There may be pedestrians and recreational cyclists on the course – particularly in Pontcanna Fields, Bute Park and on the pavements – please take care and be courteous
- There are speed bumps in Pontcanna Fields
- The route passes by the river – run on the other side of the path where possible
- There is a water station at 3.2 miles and 6.8 miles – Please dispose of bottles responsibly
