The second Kent XC League race will take place this Saturday at Somerhill School in Tonbridge.
Please find attached a course map as well as a list of TWH entries. Directions and race times are listed below.
If you ran at Footscray Meadows, please remember to bring your Kent XC League race number — replacements cost £5!
Unfortunately Jillian and I are unable to make it this weekend as we will be away running the Frankfurt Marathon. Chairman George has agreed to look after you all on the day (be nice to him) and will have your race number if you didn’t collect it at the last event.
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).
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 and desperately need a lift, please contact me or someone else who can post a request for you.
From the Vauxhall Roundabout on the A21 follow the A26 (signed Maidstone/Paddock Wood) and ‘turn right’ at the mini roundabout (signed Paddock Wood B2017). Somerhill School is located on the right hand side of the road, post code: TN11 0NJ.
Parking is on site as in previous years. Please follow the directions of the marshals.
If you volunteered to marshal, please report to the start/finish area at 11:30 and ask for either John Harley or Brian Charlton. The first race of the day is at 12:00.
|13:20||F65+ and M70+||C+Full||5,000m|
See attached course map for details of course loops (or just follow the runner in front!).
APRES RACE REFRESHMENTS
Colin Timmins has very kindly offered to host the post race refreshments at his house in Tonbridge. Colin’s address is 6 Kings Road, Tonbridge, TN9 2HD. There is plenty of free street parking and he lives about halfway between Tonbridge station and the rear entrance to Somerhill. Dogs are welcome.
If you have any questions please let either Jillian or me know, otherwise good luck on Saturday.
