Red Rose XC No 2; Chorley, Sat 19th October


EDIT; Huge apologies to anyone who followed the typo in my postcode advice and found themselves deep in the centre of Preston, especially a couple of juniors who missed their race as a result. Please accept my apologies and I’ll be more careful for the next XC fixture.

Provisional results are HERE and I’ll update the Junior XC series table as soon as possible


The next race in both the Red Rose league and our Junior XC series is this coming Sat 19th October.
The venue is Astley Park in Chorley, many of you will be familiar with it from the race series earlier in the year. Use postcode PR1 1XA to get to The Baron’s Rest pub which is next to the carpark.
Racing starts at 12.30 but please make sure you arrive at least 45 minutes before, to give plenty of time for parking, changing, pinning numbers on, etc. Allow time to warm up properly, ideally by jogging round some of the course so that you can see what the conditions are like. If you’re not sure what shoes to wear, just bring what you’ve got and decide on the day.

Also bring;

  • Club vest, running top, waterproof / windproof jacket, tracksuit bottoms, hat/buff, gloves.
  • Drink (not fizzy), a banana or cereal bar with you. It’s really important that you are fully prepared before you race which means warming up properly and having a small snack at least 30 minutes before you start.

I’ll try and get hold of the tent so that we’ll have somewhere undercover to dump bags.

See you there!

n.b; I’ll update and publish the results for the Junior XC series after this Saturday.
