Cross Country Surrey League- Men Div 3/4 (match 2)
Organised by 26.2 RRC and assisted by Epsom Oddballs
Location & Travel: Start and Finish is Epsom Downs @ Tattenham Corner (nearest postcode KT18 5PP)
Cars: Epsom Downs is just a few minutes from Epsom Town Centre on the B290 Epsom Downs Road or alternatively just off junction 9 of the M25. Tattenham Corner is about half a mile past the entrance to the Grandstand with the racecourse on your right.
Public Transport: Epsom Station is connected by both South West Trains and Southern Trains. Metrobus operates a 460, 480 and 406F service which runs from Epsom Town Centre to Tattenham Corner Station
Tattenham Corner Station: Approximately 1/3 mile walk to the start.
Epsom Downs Station: Approximately 1 mile walk to the racecourse.
Course: The Course is 5 miles over 2 laps. The terrain is mainly grass and gravel but can also have soft sand and stones, it is suitable for spikes but long spikes are not advised. The course is generally quite fast but has large sections of steady incline and a few sharp turns. Please watch out for other downs users, especially on the intersections where cyclists and horse riders frequently use these paths. Please also watch out for tree roots and any other hazards.
Facilities: There is public parking at Tattenham Corner but we recommend sharing as this is a popular car park for visitors to the downs. Public toilets are located to the west of the Tea Hut, there are no changing facilities. The only public facility on the Downs for refreshments is the Tea Hut at Tattenham Corner (opposite the car park). First Aid will be provided locally by 26.2 RRC and available onsite.
