The Croft Canter
Saturday, 22 September 2018
The Croft Canter is a 10 mile trail run to raise money for LOROS Hospice for the terminally ill. Starting in the rural village of Croft, the route will be using the public footpaths and bridleways through farmland in the local areas surrounding Croft Village.
Participants will be provided with a route map and description to follow, as it is self navigating, and there will be some course markers along the way, and the route will of course be taking you over Croft Hill!
There will be a checkpoint on route offering cakes and drinks, and also at the end all participants will be provided with a sausage cob, more cakes to choose from and soft drinks, as well as a certificate.
There are two short road sections, one at the start in Croft, and the second through Stoney Stanton, otherwise the route is all off road.
This is just a fun challenge and not a race, the idea is purely to raise money for LOROS and have a fun time running through the countryside and exploring new areas whilst doing so. And of course, eating cake!
The event will start and finish at The Heathcote Arms, giving participants the opportunity to treat themselves to a well deserved pint after the challenge. There is also a new Adventure play area under construction at the pub which will be completed well in advance of the event should anyone have supporters come along with young kids to entertain. Also nearby are public (free) tennis court, basketball court and football pitches.
It should be noted that all participants are responsible for their own welfare and safety. There are roads to cross and also a rail crossing. IF YOU CAN SEE A TRAIN YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME TO CROSS! All runners participate at their own risk. We suggest participants run in pairs and carry a mobile phone in case of emergency. The organisers take no responsibility for runners ignoring organiser/Marshals instruction or diverting from the route as laid out in the event instructions.
Parking is available behind Croft church in both the Aggregate Industries Car Park and the All Truck Car Park. Please do not park on the roads in the Village.
We look forward to seeing you and everyone having a great time, enjoying cake, and raising money for a good cause in the process!
