(Only for those not doing xcountry!)
After this morning’s (Sunday’s) fun-filled extravaganza to prepare for the main event! If you’re only going to do one Sunday run this year make sure this isn’t it! We are meeting at the Spade Oak at 9.30 for a leisurely walk and will return at 10.30 to join the runners, and will attempt a run of 5/6 miles. All are welcome as the run pace is expected to be only marginally quicker than the walk pace! Just come prepared to have a blast and wear something Christmassy! Afterwards it’s theSpade Oak for a quick snifter! Miss it at you peril!
By kind invitation from Rod and Margo, starting at 10:30am (sharp) from the public car park off Beaumont Way, Hazlemere HP15 7LQ. A run of approximately 1 hours duration and also a walk, then drinks and snacks afterwards at their home. All welcome!
The 5th in the Thames Valley Cross Country League series of races, hosted by Reading Road Runners, will take place at Crowthorne Woods (please note this is a new venue and details will be emailed soon). 11:00am start.
Meeting at the Judo Centre at 7:30pm. Will everyone bring some finger food for the buffet please. Usual stuff. Small sausages, cheese, crisps, pizza, sausage rolls etc. Also prizes for the raffle if you have anything suitable.
The 4th in the Thames Valley Cross Country League series of races, hosted by Metros, will take place at Hillingdon House Farm. 11:00am start. Take the Swakleys Junction off the A40, turning right along the B483 Park Road. The car park at the Sports Centre charges and is always very busy, but there is local parking available off Honeycroft Hill, Hercies Road and North Way (UB10 9NG). Also at Warren Road on the other side of the A40, connected by a footbridge. There are also car parks in Uxbridge the nearest is The Chimes.
They will be using Hillingdon Athletics Stadium (UB8 1ES) as their base. Please remove muddy footwear before going inside.
The course, yes there are some boring bits, but they have tried to add some interesting features into the route, so beware of tree trunks across the path (which can easily be jumped or stepped over), soft river banks, enthusiastic undergrowth and a steep bit!
