BDL Race 2: Ilkeston – Notes for runners

Dear all,
The Ilkeston Stute BDL race takes place this coming Tuesday 9th May and starts at 7:30pm

The race is a fast and flat course, with a 2 mile straight, a 1.2 mile loop and a return back to the finish on the 2 mile straight. Total distance is 5.2 miles.

With record attendances we ask that you please car share as much as possible. Car parking is at;

Belfield Furnishings Ltd
Hallam Fields Road

Please be aware that Belfields Furnishings have three sites in Ilkeston, please ensure if using a sat nav that you have the correct address.

Please make sure that you obey the car park marshalls instructions and park sensibly. Last year a couple of inconsiderate driver’s parking almost got us banned from using the site and we are on our last warning. The car park is CCTV monitored and anyone damaging Belfields stock or property will be picking up the bill.

We have secured the use of the Rugby club changing rooms. These are the only toilet facilities for the course. The Ilkeston Stute Rugby Club is on the opposite side of the road to the
Belfield Furnishings car park.

Please note that the start line is over 700m away from the car park and Rugby Club so allow plenty of time to get there.

Attached is the course map. The car park and start line will be sign posted.

After the race you are all welcome to attend the Cross Country Awards Presentation in the bar at The Stute, Ilkeston Rugby Club.
