Northampton Road Runners organised the first Hollowell 5 mile road race in 2019. The race HQ is the Hollowell Steam event field on the Teeton Road between Guilsborough and Teeton.
The race starts at the top of the hill and drops down to Ravensthorpe reservoir, into Ravensthorpe then turns back and up the hill to Teeton, continuing up hill back toward Guilsborough before a 1 mile flat finish into the site field. See the map below.
The Teeton road between Guilsborough and the site is closed to through traffic. We ask that you approach the site from Teeton. To get to Teeton turn off the Welford Road at Spratton. The road takes you to a junction with 5 roads, you will see signs to the race field at this point. Print directions here.
If you need a postcode for SatNav use NN6 8LJ. This brings you close to the 5 road junction.
NOTE: You must be on the site field by 9:40am because we close the site to cars for safety reasons.
The map above shows the race route in orange and the road closure on the Teeton Road west of the race HQ. Please approach the event by following one of the blue dashed lines above. There is plenty of parking on site.
