This is the second running of Northampton Road Runners Hollowell 5. The race HQ is the Hollowell Steam event field on the Teeton Road between Guilsborough and Teeton.
The race starts at the Hollowell Steam Show field then drops down to to the reservoir via Coton and into Ravensthorpe. We briefly run through Ravensthorpe before turning back towards Teeton, continuing toward Guilsborough before a 1 mile flat finish back into the site field. See the map below.
Note: We are NOT running up that hill that climbs from Hollowell towards Guilsborough. Our route is a challenging but much more runnable 435 ft of ascent.
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.
