On race days Sam Hale will have the numbers at the club tent. Numbers must be returned to her after the race as we need them again for the next race (the club has to pay for replacement numbers). Bags etc can be left in the tent.

Brian, Karl and Mark will be arriving at meetings at 10am to walk the course if you would like to join them. In any event please arrive no later than 1 hour before your race in order to warm up, get your number, put spikes on and look at the course.

You will need:- a Tipton vest, (otherwise you can't compete ), safety pins, spikes (XC length), tape to make sure you don't lose a shoe in the mud, warm/spare clothes for before and after races, wellies to walk the course if you have them and something to eat/drink after the race.

Transport- If you have trouble getting to a race please tell your coach who will try to help arrange a lift.
Parking: It can be a long walk from car park to the start so allow enough time.
