Date and Time
The 2018 race will be on Sunday, 8th April starting at 11.00 am. Please arrive in good time. You will find out your approximate start time with your Race Pack. Teams will start in number order but if you miss your time you will be placed in a later slot.
The start and finish is at the Thurstaston Visitor Centre in the Wirral Country Park. This is well signposted off the A540 between Heswall and Caldy near Irby. There is plenty of car-parking and toilets but no shower facilities. There will be drinks stations on the course and at the finish. In addition there is a well appointed cafe on site.
