The 2019 Winter Hill League, sponsored by Aston International, kicks off on Saturday 19th October at St John’s with a 5km route within the confines of Witches Hill. The route will be challenging but fun with nothing too steep or technical - ideal for newcomers to the discipline. The race forms part of 3 in the series with runners having to complete each race to qualify. Open to all runners aged 12 or above. Subsequent rounds will be held on 9th November and 7th December. Details of those will be announced in due course.
Registration will be from 12:30 at the former railway station car park (location link) with racing underway at 13:30 from the clearing off Patrick Road (here). Race entry fee is £5 for seniors, juniors free. We will again be taking contactless card payments (inc. Apple Pay & Google Pay) so don’t worry about dashing off to find a cash machine before the race!
Hops-based sports drinks will be will be available for purchase afterwards in the nearby Tynwald Inn, which also serves food all day.
Please use the pre entry option below to register. It is easier for us if you pre-enter even if you may not race. Any junior runners must complete a consent form signed by a parent or guardian if they have not already competed in an MFR organised event this year (in which case they will be already covered until the end of the year). A list will be available at registration detailing runners who already have a valid consent form.
A few reminders before the race:
Entry details will be carried over for each race so if you pre-enter for round 1, or enter on the day, your details will be carried forward to the subsequent two rounds.
A new race number will be issued for each race. Please do not recycle your old number - this does not go down well with the timekeepers or results compiler!
No safety kit is required for these races but if the weather is particularly poor please dress to the conditions.
Routes are fully marked but we recommend arriving early in order to have a look around the course.
