Wheatley Winter 10 – 10/12/2016

I did have a moment when I wondered what on earth I was doing putting my shorts on and driving miles through the countryside on a Saturday morning in December!  Marshal’s helped with parking and race HQ was in a village hall which was warm and cosy. I met Kate there and we were both fairly nervous but cheered somewhat by our matching outfits! (Not intentional btw).  We had the pleasure of meeting Karen Lynch and chatting to her for a while – she was lovely and is now our role model!  Our target time was 2 hours as we’re not cross country-ers and didn’t really know what to expect.

Penistone Showground Cross Country – Sunday 11 December

Note, all the races go in different order with the Men off at 11:00.  Check your start times below!

Information about the Championships is now on the website, and also attached to this email. A few points to remember – Latest information at this link:

  1. Seniors run first. Men go at 11am followed by Ladies.
  2. New registrations accepted until the start of the event, but it helps me if you can get them in before the day.
  3. If someone cannot stay for presentations, it helps me if their award can be collected by someone else.

Apart from that, it’s just another cross country event.

See you there.
