Junior Rivington Pike races

Saturday 26th March 2016

The start of the junior races (U8, U10, U12, U14 and U16) is behind Rivington and Blackrod School, Lever park Ave, Horwich. Sat Nav post code BL6 7RU . Please allow yourselves time to park and walk up to the registration area which is by the start (and not in the Crown Hotel).

Parking - Lever Park Avenue is part of the senior course, so parking up some of the many side streets is acceptable BUT keep access to all drives clear so that locals are not affected. I understand that families will want to park as near as possible, but a five minute walk to the registration isn't too much to ask - Thanks.

The U18 and U20 races are part of the main race and you must register in the Crown Hotel.
**If you are responsible for different aged athletes please be aware that the junior race start and the main race start are half a mile apart**

Registration is open for the junior race from 11am. Its 2 pounds per athlete. A race registration form is available to download (link can be found at the bottom of this document) and if possible complete and bring with you, otherwise you will have to complete one on the day. All details must be complete. One must be completed, legibly, for all runners.
