*The Mini-Marathon is about 500 metres long. The Start is on the flat section of Hillfield Park and it is hoped that everyone will take part (!) except those who volunteer to act as guides/stewards along the route, tape-holders or time-keepers.
** The Bottle Tombola is stocked by voluntary contributions of bottles from the street. But, to raise the standard and stimulate interest, MARKS & SPENCER have contributed a case of fine wines along with their best wishes for an exciting and successful day. Thanks you guys.
*** The standard charge for side-shows (except those which are free) is 20p.
Proceeds on the day go to Muswell Hill charities, including the Hornsey Trust for Children with Cerebral Palsy.
Junction with St James’s Lane... Down the hill under the bridge... Sharp left past the lockups and up on to the Parkland Walk... Then there is a choice...
NB The finishing tape will be by the Olympic flame outside No 40. So we will be asking the police to keep the car park bottled up as our Chariots of Fire burst through. Wow!
- Competitors can go on to the tunnel, Rt up the slope, left up Muswell Hill and then left down past the Dragons and the Centre to the Finishing line in Hillfield Park; or
- Marathon for softies: if you’ve had enough by the time you reach the Parkland Walk, exit Left past the Health Club and rejoin the course, but be careful not to impede the competitive runners.
