    Castle Carr recce

    The inaugural Castle Carr race will be on Sun Sep 4th. http://www.cvfr.co.uk/races/castle-carr/

    This Sunday (24th) I'll lead a recce of the route. Meet at the Hare & Hounds for 9am for anyone who's interested in joining us.

    Since part of the race route goes through a private estate, there is instead a recce route that covers all of the race route outside the estate. The section through the estate will be well flagged on the day, so the fact that no-one will be able to recce it doesn't matter.

    While the actual race is 15 miles / 4000', the recce route is 12.5 miles / 3200'.

    And we'll have a well-earned pint in the Hare & Hounds afterwards.

    I was thinking of leading another recce of the Castle Carr race on Sunday, 10am.
    Would anyone be interested?

    Last time it took us 3.5 hours, and we had a 50% DNF rate due to people underestimating the difficulty!!

    Its a way off yet, but...
    There will be a couple of recces of the full Castle Carr race route in 2017, on July 16th and Aug 20th.

    Normally, recces have to miss out the private estate, but the landowners have given us permission to have two organised recces of the full route, including through the estate.
