2013 Hillcrest 10km

Sunday May 19th


2013 Results - Rev 3 - 26/05/13

We apologise for the slightly over-distance of the 10k. The distance was accurately measured but unfortunately runners were directed to run 2.5 laps of the rugby field instead of 1.5, adding 0.6 to 0.7 of a mile.

For the second year, the 2013 Hillcrest 10km and junior races are being jointly organised by the Hillcrest Netball Club and Collingwood AC.

This year our event is sponsored by:

who will again be providing a stall of clothing, gels, shoes, etc, many at reduced prices.

Race HQ & registration

Registration will be open from 9.00am to 10:45am in the event HQ, which is the Warlingham Rugby Football Club, Limpsfield Road, Warlingham, CR6 9RB.

Please allow sufficient time before the start of the race to collect your race number from the ‘Pre-Registered’ Desk. We will have a supply of safety pins available. If you need any assistance, please ask any of the organisers who will all be wearing either Hillcrest jumpers or Collingwood hoodies.


There is a large tarmac car park as you turn into the Rugby Club and there is also an even larger overflow car park onto the fields, if required. Please do not park in the surrounding streets as there is absolutely no need and parking there will be further from the race HQ than any of the official parking. Please follow the instructions of the car park marshals, who will be wearing fluorescent jackets.

Changing rooms, showers & toilets

There are men's and women's changing rooms, showers and sufficient toilets in the clubhouse. There will be a manned baggage area in the bar where kit bags can be left during the race.


Warlingham Rugby Football Club has a fully licensed bar which will be open from 12 noon.

The kitchen will be serving a selection of refreshments including tea, coffee, bacon rolls, sandwiches, cakes and soft drinks, before and after the race. All refreshments are reasonably priced.

Confirmation of entry (via e-mail or SAE)

Team race

In addition to running your individual race you may also enter into our free team event; there is no limit on the number of runners in your team but a minimum of three are required to score. Your first three runners finishing positions are added together and the team with the lowest score wins!


All participants are responsible for their own safety at all times, especially when crossing Tithepit Shaw Lane, which is crossed twice. The crossing point will be manned by experienced marshals to guide you across the road safely. All signs and directions must be followed; police and marshals’ instructions obeyed and the route strictly adhered to. The course is completely way-marked (sign posted) and has marshals along the course to assist you.

Qualified first aid will be on hand at the race HQ and dotted around the course. First aid kits are available.

Course description

This is an undulating course passing through scenic countryside, along public footpaths. There is public access to the entire route, so please watch out for Sunday walkers and their dogs. Approximately 100 metres of the route is along a road with a wide pavement and this section is run on the way out and on the way back. The race starts and finishes in the grounds of Warlingham Rugby Football Club.

There is a water station after approximately 5.5km. Water is also available at the finish.

The course was re-measured last year and we have now established an accurate 10km route which is mapped and will be able to be reused for future years.

Junior races

The under-16 race will be two full laps of the Rugby Club grounds approximately one mile.

The under-10 race will be one lap of the Rugby Club grounds approximately a half mile.

These races will start as soon as the adults have cleared the rugby fields and are out on the course. The juniors are always in view of the start and finish, with marshals around the field.


Results of all three races will be announced as soon as possible after each race. The prizes will be awarded after the end of the 10km race.

Provisional results will also be published on both the Hillcrest Netball Club website and the Collingwood AC website as soon as possible on race day.

Results will be e-mailed out to all runners who have supplied an e-mail address as soon as possible after the event. If you wish to receive postal results, please enclose a Stamped Addressed Envelope with your application.


Medals will be awarded to all finishers.

The first three male and the first three female finishers will all receive a prize, as will the first male vet-40, male vet-50, male vet-60, female vet-35, female vet-45 and female vet-55. Only one prize will be given to any individual runner.

For the junior races there will be prizes for the first boy and girl in the under 16 race and the first boy and girl in the under 10 race.

There will be a small prize to the first team.


We will have a photographer at the event and photographs will be available on-line within a couple of days of the event.
