The fourth cross country race of the season will be held on Sunday 13th January 2013 at Therfield Heath, Royston, hosted by Royston Runners.
The race HQ is: The Heath Sports Centre, Baldock Road, Royston, SG8 5BG: Race Location
We will be meeting at Southbury Leisure Centre in the car park (see location), and leaving for the race promptly at 9:00am. Where possible we will car share, and there should be spaces if somebody needs a lift. There is limited car parking near the sports centre in Royston.
Race HQ is The Heath Sports Centre, Baldock Road, Royston, SG8 5BG. The race starts at 10:30am, and consists of a two lap course over approximately 5.5 miles, the course is very hilly and one of the best cross country races out there. Trail shoes or spikes are best suited to this course which is over grass, and care should be taken as there may be rabbit holes at places on the course. There is no fee for club members to participate in this race, as the club pays the league membership fee.
There are changing and shower facilities at race HQ. Bags can be kept in cars or near the Start/ Finish with somebody watching them during the race.
We need 8 men and 5 women for complete teams, so please come along and support your club. If you are unable to run please come and support your fellow club members and cheer them on.
Please note that when racing you should wear your Edmonton Running Club racing vest if you have one, if not there are a few spares which other club members may be able to lend (if you have a spare vest bring it along as another runner may need it).
If you would like to bring along any cakes, biscuits, snacks, hot drinks etc to share with team mates these would be very much appreciated. Also make sure you bring a warm set of clothes to change into. There is a bar in the sports centre which will be serving food and drink.
