About Stanwick Village Races
Our 10k race is marshalled, organised and adjudicated according to official UKA rules, but our events are designed as much for the community as they are for runners, our village comes together to create a great day’s entertainment which is great for all the family, runners and supporters!
Stanwick Race Group
Stanwick Race Group consists of a group of volunteers, mainly from our village. The group meets regularly throughout the year to plan the annual Stanwick Easter Races.
The Stanwick Village Races are a major annual event for our village, and a warm welcome to all athletes is assured.
The whole village is involved in the organisation and preparation, with local people manning the Car Parks and providing friendly and encouraging marshalling, apart from all the other tasks involved in organising a successful Race Day.
We are always on the lookout for willing volunteers to help marshal our races on the day. Please get in touch if you would like to join us by emailing Tim Page.
What preparation do we do?
With so many visitors to the village, it is very important to have clear signs so that the athletes can find their way to the car parks, changing area and registration area. The course has to be carefully marked and marshals situated at frequent intervals.
Drink stations need to be set up, road closure signs, cones and signs to warn motorists about the runners need to be put in place.
Everything possible is done to ensure the safety and well-being of the runners, spectators and residents.
We have official Traffic Management Officers in attendance.
