Stage 10 : Llanfair Caereinion to Newtown, 13.1m
MOUNTAIN STAGE (and glory leg...)
This is a new route for 2012 with the start as you leave Llanfair Caereinion. To quote the Final Instructions letter:
The race will start at the junction of Watergate Street/High Street in Llanfair Caereinion (opposite church) on B4389 (far end of the town avoiding congestion on the bridge and main street).
The previous Stage Route Map which will be updated can be viewed here (as a pdf file).
The new stage route can also be viewed here on Gmaps pedometer which includes elevation details, although it must be stressed that the distances and altitude calculated by Gmaps are approximate and not race measured.
Race marshalling and other instructions for this and indeed all 20 stages of the relay can be seen here in the 'Castles Reference Pack'. This quite a large file though (2.9 Mb !).
Start: Town side of the river bridge (Grid Ref: SJ104065 ).
Start time: 18:20 pm
Finish: In the churchyard by the ruins (Grid Ref: SO107917).
