Croydon Ultra 30 Mile – Update June 13th

Less than 4 weeks to go to the 3rd Croydon Ultra– 30 Miles

 

Hi there everyone,

 

Plans for the 3rd Croydon Ultra (30M) are well underway. We are looking forward to greeting you and ensuring you have a safe and enjoyable run through the local scenery. There will be no 15 mile event as we have no participants but it will be possible to stop at this distance as it is the halfway point, if you so choose.

 

Please note that the event HQ is at Sandilands Sprts & Social Club, Addiscombe, Croydon, Surrey. Post Code CR0 5DB
The Event HQ is within easy reach of :
East Croydon Railway/Tram stations (10 -15 min walk). East Croydon railway station serves London Victoria and London Bridge and south coast stations.
Lloyd Park Tram stop (10 min walk across Lloyd Park)

 

Event HQ

 

Please register and obtain your race number

Changing room and toilet facilities available at the Clubhouse

Bag drop at registration

Event HQ is also the halfway point so if you want to leave drinks then this can be done (please label clearly)

 

Route change

 

In order to make the route more off road the first 5-6 miles of the route has been changed to follow the Vanguard Way. This is a well sign posted route but will be marked in places to help you.

Route directions are being updated and will be available on the website shortly.   http://www.thecroydonultra.co.uk/

Paper copies of the route directions will be available on the day as well.
