Clowne XC – Sunday 22nd January

The next XC will be at Clowne on Sunday. Clowne RR have sent us the following information. In addition, please remember your club vest / T shirt and your race number (if you ran at Retford):

· Race starts at 11am. Venue is 15 mins from start.

· The main hall at the Clowne Community Centre, Recreation Close, S43 4PL, will be used as the event venue.

· Try to car share from your respective clubs where possible.

· The course starts and finishes about ¾ mile from the Clowne Community Centre near the Clowne Cricket Club on Mansfield Road and is a good distance for a warm up and a cool down.

· There are no car parks near the start/finish area, so if you are driving up there please park responsibly.

· There will be a gazebo at the start/finish point to leave items while the race takes place. The Recorders and Timekeepers will be in this area for the duration of the race, so kit should be ok.

· The course is approx 5.5 miles classed as undulating, with a broad mix of fields, road, public footways and styles.

· There will be marshals and tape to guide you around the course.

· Please make your way to the Clowne Community Centre after the event for buffet, race results and rehydration (the bar will be open). Also no muddy shoes in the Centre please.

· IMPORTANT: please do not use the lane just after the start area as a toilet. We had complaints couple of years ago with people in full view doing their business!!! If you have to, then go further down the lane and go into the woods.
