The following provides some background information to this very popular race

Not the Roman IX

A 12km road race over the old Roman 9 course

Under UKA/EA rules.  Includes Chip Timing 

Venue / Race HQ - NFU Mutual Sports & Social Club,

Knights Lane, Tiddington, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 7BZ

All runners must be over 16 years of age on race day
The course is not suitable for wheelchairs on the grounds of safety.
This event, originally named after our first sponsors (Roman Motors), started life as a 9 mile road race in 1968 although only much later did it become an annual race. During the 1980s and 1990s it established itself as a very popular event on the road racing calendar during what is traditionally a quiet time for races.

In 2004 it was necessary to change our host venue and we were pleased to be able to use the facilities at FISSC, Knights Lane, Tiddington, Stratford upon Avon (the Sports and Social Club of the NFU Mutual Insurance Society Ltd). Although the route remains predominantly the same the change to the Start and Finish meant a re-measuring of the course. This is why the distance is a slightly unusual 12k (ideal for PBs!) and also explains the new name of the race.

Due to limited parking facilities, and for safety considerations on the course, there is a race limit of 800 with no entries on the day. The success of the race is such that the entry limit has been reached in each of the past 5 years and you are advised to enter early to secure your place.

No entry monies will be refunded but a transfer of entries will be allowed. By entering the 2015 race you are agreeing to these conditions

Any decision regarding weather conditions will be taken on the guidance of the Race Adjudicator as to the safety of the course

Take part as a singer (or in a duo/group) or simply sit back and enjoy the fun from the safety of your table. Involvement is optional but it would be nice to see you have a go!

Choose your song, release your inner Elvis, Lionel or Madonna (other artists are available!) and

Hopefully there'll be plenty of willing crooners and divas, otherwise you might hear a few numbers from the Stratford AC Committee supergroup.
