(Same day of the Flu Vaccinations at Goring surgery. Genie has advised the race organiser)
The annual Chiltern Wonderland 50-mile run will take place for the 6th time. The event HQ is at Goring Village Hall and the 200 or so runners will register there before beginning in a rolling start format between 8.00am and 8.30am, so that there will be no congestion or large gathering around the area outside the hall.
The course is single 50-mile loop through the Chilterns, with 80% on trails, 20% on roads and it starts and finishes in Goring-on-Thames. Runners have 13 hours to make it back to the village hall to finish. The first runner is expected back around 3.30pm and only a handful are expected to finish before 5.00pm, so there shouldn’t be any access or congestion problem for patients going to or back from receive their flu vaccinations in Red Cross Road.
The remainder of the runners completing the loop will do so between 7.30pm - 9.00pm when the event and the Goring Village Hall HQ closes. Please do give the runners a wave and a cheer if you see them!
