The third Kent XC League race will take place this Saturday at Danson Park, nr. Bexley. Please note that there is no Senior Women’s (under 65) race at this meeting.
Please find attached a course map as well as a list of TWH entries. Directions and race times are listed below.
I will be there early to collect race numbers for new entries. I also have all the uncollected race numbers from previous races. Don’t forget to bring some safety pins to attach your number! Please note that there are no entries on the day (please check the attached entries list to make sure that you have been entered).
If you have run at either of the previous two League events, don’t forget to bring your Kent XC League race number — replacements cost £5!
The course is suitable for spikes.
Reminder: all runners must wear club kit (deckchair and dark coloured shorts/leggings) — David Castle has a stock of deckchairs at the Running Hub if you don’t have one, have misplaced yours, or need a new one.
Please try and share cars where possible from St Johns Sports Centre. If you are able to give other people a lift or need a lift yourself, please post a message in the club Facebook group and arrange individually. If you don’t use Facebook please contact someone else who can post a request for you.
From the M25 J2, follow the A2 towards Central London, taking the exit signed Bexleyheath A221 / Blackfen A210. At the first roundabout take the 2nd exit (initially signed Blackfen A210). At the next roundabout, take the last exit signed Bexleyheath A221, pass the Audi garage on the right and pass under the A2. Continue straight over the next roundabout, following signs for Bexleyheath A221 and continue up the hill. The entrance to Danson Park is on the left (signed Danson House / Register Office). Post code for Danson Stables: DA6 8HL.
Either park in the car park in front of Danson Stables or continue a bit further along the drive to the main car park. Race HQ is on the grassy area on the other side of the lake, a short walk down the hill (on your left hand side as you drive into the park).
Note that Danson Park is within the London ULEZ zone. You can check whether your vehicle is compliant on the TFL Website.
If you volunteered to marshal, please report to Race HQ at 11:30 and ask for Anoushka Johnson, the volunteer coordinator. The first race of the day is at 12:00.
|13:20||F65+ & M70+||5,000m|
