Leamington Cycling and Athletics Club
2017 Christmas Cross Country Handicap
“Oh come and enjoy it”
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to race around the Rugby pitches at the Old Leamingtonians Rugby Club.
This years Christmas Handicap will take place at 10:30am on Wednesday, 27 December. The bar will be open throughout the event.
Each lap is 1.1 miles long with age groups running as follows:
- U11s and U13s: 1 lap
- U15s: 2 laps
- Women U17: 3 laps
- Women U20 and upwards: 3 laps
- Men U17 and upwards: 4 laps
Whilst it is a race, we want as many people as possible to take part. If you feel you’ll be unable to complete the full number of laps please let us know and we’ll reduce your laps to suit you.
The course is entirely on grass. It is mostly firm underfoot with parts of the lower pitches a little boggy and a short uneven stretch in the paddock towards the end of the lap.
Guests are welcome. You DON’T have to be a club member. Kids bring your mums and dads, mums and dads bring your kids! Other family and friends too. The more the merrier, but try and give us names beforehand please
To take part please notify Steve Webb ( email@example.com ) before Christmas so he can prepare a handicap for you.
RUNNERS WILL BE SET OFF ACCORDING TO THEIR HANDICAP, WITH FASTEST RUNNERS LAST TO GO. PLEASE STILL ARRIVE IN TIME TO START AT 10.30 AM.
Optionally, bring along a wrapped gift of value up to five pounds. You may then collect a gift during the post-race results announcements.
The address is Bericote Road, Blackdown, CV32 6QP. Mick Aston would appreciate some help on the day to mark out the course and to marshall during the race. If you can help out, please let Mick know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A Big Thanks to Steve Webb for putting so much time into things like this and reply as quickly as possible to Steve confirming you are running so he can sort the handicaps.
