Yes, it’s finally here! This Saturday marks the start of the cross country season with both our men’s and women’s teams competing in their cross country leagues at Newbold Common in Leamington. The women’s race starts at 13:30 with the men’s following at 14:30.
If you want to run (and why wouldn’t you?) and haven’t yet done so please contact your team captain so they can make sure you are entered into the team – note that your entry fee is covered by the club so it’s basically free! Your club captain will give you your race number on the day…you just need to rememebr yor club vest and safety pins!
The women’s team are meeting at 11:30 at the cricket club and heading over to Leamington en masse with the men meeting an hour later (so 12:30!) also at the cricket club. Typically traffic through Leamington is busy and parking at Newbold Common slightly chaotic so car sharing is definitely adviseable.
We intend to have the club tent and flags (yes, plural) up at Newbold Common so you’ll be able to find us and have somehwere to stash your kit bag and get changed.
Lastly, if you’re not running, please do come along and support the troops. The course consists of 2 or 3 laps so there is plenty of chance to see your club mates in action (and by action we mean pain!). After the racing many of us will head back to the cricket club to share tales of our heroism over a drink or two…or three!
